Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Illinois are perfect for children who are creative, imaginative and love playing with technology! These interactive courses help elementary and middle school kids have fun, get motivated and gain life-long skills as they create their very own video games. Our kid-friendly format allows children to experience visual, interactive tasks and activities that offer new and exciting challenges each and every week.
Help Your Child Level Up
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 Confidence While Building Games!
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. 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 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!
