Computer programming becomes more fun than ever before when you choose Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Paducah, Cape Girardeau and Harrisburg region! Using innovative, kid-friendly technology, our hands-on programs equip students with important technical and creative skills they can put to use in the classroom and beyond. There's nothing like seeing your child enjoy a sense of accomplishment after designing, coding and animating a video game that can be shared and played with friends (so cool!).

Big Smiles and Big Leaps Forward

Kids and parents alike know that our game design courses come complete with plenty of interaction, engagement and motivation. Not only will your child develop vital 21st century skills, but he or she will also build confidence by working toward a goal each week. Each session has a distinct objective and outcome, and includes a wrap-up activity, so your child will reinforce the skills he or she learned and feel accomplished at the end of each class. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s programming project, letting you be a part of the exciting progress and share the accomplishment with the whole family.

Your Child Will Have a Great Time:

  • Creating stories and progressively working towards a final project: a video game that he or she can play with friends! 
  • Learning how to design characters, animations, sounds and special effects using intuitive Tynker™ technology 
  • Developing valuable skills, including problem solving, logic, physics and more 
  • Collaborating with other students and making lasting friendships!
