Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Des Moines and Ames region make learning computer programming a blast! 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 enjoy a strong sense of achievement as he or she begins to code, program and animate a custom video game that can later be shared and played with friends (how cool is that?!).

New Skills, New Achievements

Kids and parents alike will love our game design courses because they’re interactive, engaging and highly motivating. Your child will not only get to grips with vital 21st century skills; he or she will also become more capable and confident by achieving a set goal 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. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s programming project, letting you be a part of the exciting progress and share the accomplishment with the whole family.

Your Child Will Have a Blast:

  • Developing skills that will put him or her on the road to success, like problem solving, logic and physics
  • Learning to use innovative Tynker™ technology to design and create characters, animations, sounds and special effects
  • Creating stories that will lead to an exciting final project: an original video game that he or she can actually play with friends!
