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! These interactive courses provide a fun and motivating way for elementary and middle school children to learn life-long skills while making new friends and designing their very own video game. We deliver our courses in a kid-friendly format, meaning your child can expect to enjoy highly interactive activities and take on cool challenges that he or she will be excited to resume each week.
Help Your Child Level Up
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Alaska, but that's not all: they're also the perfect way for your child to learn about and develop vital 21st century skills. In fact, the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills we emphasize are increasingly demanded as the digital world continues to grow. Your child will have a great time making digital animations and creating video games — tasks that include important problem solving, programming and basic coding skills.▼
Building Games — and Confidence!
Our Coding for Kids courses boost confidence! Every class is built around a clear objective and outcome, which means your child will progress towards a goal and be excited to talk about his or her achievements 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. On top of that, you will get a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can see all the exciting things he or she is up to and share his or her wonderful work with family and friends.
You Can Expect Your Child To:
- Learn how to create animations and add characters, sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Create mini-stories and a video game that can be played with friends
- Gain increasingly important 21st century skills — from programming to logic — while advancing his or her own project
- Collaborate with peers and meet new friends!
