Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Iowa are ideal for creative children who simply love playing with technology! Elementary and middle school children can take part in fun, interactive courses where they can make new friends, create their own video games and gain skills they can use for life. We provide programs that have kid-friendly formats, which means your child will take on highly interactive challenges, tasks and activities that present new and interesting ideas every week.
Boost Your Child's Skills and Potential
Our Coding for Kids courses in Iowa are all about fun and excitement, but they also help kids gain critical 21st century skills. We focus on important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills that are increasingly needed for success in a growing digital world. So your child won't only have fun making video games and creating digital animations — he or she will also pick up essential coding, programming and problem solving skills along the way.
Building Games — and Confidence!
Our Coding for Kids programs are a real confidence booster! 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 at the end of each session, which helps students consolidate the skills they've picked up in class. On top of that, we provide a link to your child’s weekly programming project, which allows you to be involved in his or her exciting progress and share it with family and friends.
