Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Our Coding for Kids courses in Iowa aren’t only a lot of fun: they’re also an effective way for your child to start developing crucial skills for the 21st century. In fact, by emphasizing sought-after skills in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), we prepare students to succeed in an increasingly digital world. Your child will be developing important programming and coding skills as he or she has a blast creating digital animations and video games.▼
Build Confidence While Building Games!
Coding for Kids boosts confidence! There are clear goals and outcomes for every class, so your child will be excited and proud to share his or her progress each week. Your child will also participate in a wrap-up activity at the end of each session, which will help strengthen the skills he or she learned in class. We provide a link to your child’s weekly programming project too, enabling you to see what kind of exciting progress is being made and share it with friends and family.
At Each Fun-Filled Session, Your Child Will:
- Learn how to create animations and add characters, sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Create mini-stories and a video game that can be played with friends
- Gain increasingly important 21st century skills — from programming to logic — while advancing his or her own project
- Collaborate with peers and meet new friends!
