Boost Creativity and Confidence
If your child loves tinkering with computers and finding out how different technologies work, our Coding for Kids programs in Ames could be just the rewarding experience you’re looking for. Your child will progress towards building his or her own video game by completing a mini-assignment and a wrap-up activity each week that will reinforce the concepts learned in class. By the end of the course, your child will feel an amazing sense of accomplishment — and will want to share all of his or her exciting projects with you! We’ll send you a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can see all the wonderful things he or she is building and share his or her work with the entire family.

- Entertaining, hands-on challenges that will keep your child engaged, such as learning the ins and outs of creating animations with original characters, sounds and special effects
- A chance to use innovative Tynker™ technology, which helps make learning computer programming simple.
- Weekly challenges that progressively build towards creating an original video game to share with friends and family
