We provide practical programs that feature innovative, kid-friendly technology, which helps kids develop vital technical and creative skills they can put to use now and in the future. 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!).

Get the Right Prep at the Right Time!

Kids and parents alike know that our game design courses come complete with plenty of interaction, engagement and motivation. Your child will not only get to grips with vital 21st century skills; he or she will also become more capable and confident by achieving a set goal each week. That's why we end each session with a wrap-up activity that helps children consolidate their new knowledge and take away a strong sense of satisfaction. Best yet, you will receive a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can check out all the amazing things he or she is creating and share his or her accomplishments with the whole family.
