Blast into Big Fun with Sylvan

Interaction, engagement and motivation are the name of the game with our game design courses. Not only will your child pick up crucial 21st century skills, but he or she will also experience the confidence boost that comes with completing tasks and goals every week. Every session finishes with a wrap-up task that reinforces learning outcomes and helps every student leave with a sense of satisfaction. On top of that, you will be provided with a link to your child's programming project, allowing you to share his or her amazing accomplishments with family and friends.

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!
