Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Illinois, 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.▼
Build Games. Build Confidence!
Coding for Kids boosts 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. 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.
