Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Iowa are ideal for creative children who simply love playing with technology! These interactive programs make it fun for elementary and middle school children to develop skills they can use for life, as well as make new friends while creating their very own video games. Our kid-friendly format allows children to experience visual, interactive tasks and activities that offer new and exciting challenges each and every week.

Power Up Your Child’s Potential

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 Games. Build Confidence!

Coding for Kids boosts confidence! Each class has a clear objective and outcome, so your child will work toward a goal and be proud to share his or her accomplishments with you 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. On top of that, you will get a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can see all the exciting things he or she is up to and share his or her wonderful work with family and friends.

You Can Expect Your Child To:

  • Learn how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology 
  • Develop mini-stories, working towards a final video game design that can be shared and played with friends 
  • Build important 21st century skills — including programming, logic and computational competencies — while experimenting with his or her own project 
  • Collaborate with other kids and make new friends!
