Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Cedar Rapids, Waterloo and Dubuque region make computer programming more fun than ever before! We provide practical programs that feature innovative, kid-friendly technology, which helps kids develop vital technical and creative skills they can put to use now and in the future. Your child will feel an amazing sense of accomplishment as he or she learns how to program, design and animate his or her own video game that can be shared and played with friends (talk about cool!).

Blast into Big Fun with Sylvan

Interaction, engagement and motivation are the name of the game with our game design courses. Not only will your child learn about skills that are vital in the 21st century, but he or she will also gain much more confidence by progressing towards new and exciting goals each week. That's why we end each session with a wrap-up activity that helps children consolidate their new knowledge and take away a strong sense of satisfaction. We will also send you a link to your child’s programming project, so you can be involved in his or her incredible progress and share it with the whole family.

Your Child Will Have a Blast:

  • Creating stories and progressively working towards a final project: a video game that he or she can play with friends! 
  • Learning how to design characters, animations, sounds and special effects using intuitive Tynker™ technology 
  • Developing valuable skills, including problem solving, logic, physics and more 
  • Collaborating with other students and making lasting friendships!
