Big Smiles and Big Leaps Forward

Interaction, engagement and motivation are the name of the game with our game design courses. Not only will your child pick up crucial 21st century skills, but he or she will also experience the confidence boost that comes with completing tasks and goals every 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. On top of that, you will be provided with a link to your child's programming project, allowing you to share his or her amazing accomplishments with family and friends.
