With Sylvan's Coding for Kids courses in Minnesota, you'll find the perfect experience for your imaginative, technology-loving child! Elementary and middle school children can take part in fun, interactive courses where they can make new friends, create their own video games and gain skills they can use for life. 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 Minnesota are all about fun and excitement, but they also help kids gain critical 21st century skills. We focus on important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills that are increasingly needed for success in a growing digital world. So your child won't only have fun making video games and creating digital animations — he or she will also pick up essential coding, programming and problem solving skills along the way.
Build Games. Build Confidence!
Our Coding for Kids programs are a real confidence booster! 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, 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.
Children In Our Fun-Filled Sessions 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!
