Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Alaska are tailored for kids who love to be creative and imaginative — and who love playing with technology! Elementary and middle school children can take part in fun, interactive courses where they can make new friends, create their own video games and gain skills they can use for life. We provide programs that have kid-friendly formats, which means your child will take on highly interactive challenges, tasks and activities that present new and interesting ideas every week.
Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Our Coding for Kids courses in Alaska are all about fun and excitement, but they also help kids gain critical 21st century skills. We focus on important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills that are increasingly needed for success in a growing digital world. So your child won't only have fun making video games and creating digital animations — he or she will also pick up essential coding, programming and problem solving skills along the way.
Building Games — and Confidence!
Our Coding for Kids courses boost confidence! There are clear goals and outcomes for every class, so your child will be excited and proud to share his or her progress each week. Your child will also take part in a wrap-up activity to end each session, which ensures the skills he or she has picked up can be strengthened and reinforced. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s weekly project, allowing you to be a part of the exciting things he or she is doing — and share this wonderful work with friends and family.
At Each Fun-Filled Session, Your Child Will:
- Develop critical 21st century skills such as logic, programming and computational competencies
- Learn how to animate, create characters, and add sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Create mini-stories and work towards a finished video game that can be played with friends
- Work together with other kids and make new friends!
