Help Your Child Level Up

Our Coding for Kids courses in Minnesota aren’t just big on fun: they’re also a great way for your child to build critical 21st century skills. Focusing on in-demand STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills, we equip students with competencies that can help them thrive in an ever-growing digital world. Your child will have a blast creating video games and animated stories while developing vital problem solving, programming and basic coding skills along the way.

Building Games — and Confidence!

Our Coding for Kids courses boost 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. 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.

During Each Session, Your Child Will:

  • Develop critical 21st century skills such as logic, programming and computational competencies 
  • Learn how to animate, create characters, and add sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology 
  • Create mini-stories and work towards a finished video game that can be played with friends
  • Work together with other kids and make new friends!
