Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Our Coding for Kids courses in Alaska aren’t just big on fun: they’re also a great way for your child to build critical 21st century skills. Focusing on in-demand STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills, we equip students with competencies that can help them thrive in an ever-growing digital world. Your child will have a blast creating video games and animated stories while developing vital problem solving, programming and basic coding skills along the way.
Play and Learn? Now You Can!
Our Coding for Kids courses boost confidence! Each class has a clear objective and outcome, so your child will work toward a goal and be proud to share his or her accomplishments with you each week. There are also wrap-up activities to finish each session, which helps your son or daughter reinforce the new skills he or she has discovered. We provide a link to your child’s weekly programming project too, enabling you to see what kind of exciting progress is being made and share it with friends and family.
At Each Fun-Filled Session, Your Child Will:
- Learn how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Develop mini-stories, working towards a final video game design that can be shared and played with friends
- Build important 21st century skills — including programming, logic and computational competencies — while experimenting with his or her own project
- Collaborate with other kids and make new friends!
