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. We deliver our courses in a kid-friendly format, meaning your child can expect to enjoy highly interactive activities and take on cool challenges that he or she will be excited to resume each week.
Power Up Your Child’s Potential
Our Coding for Kids courses in Missouri 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!
Coding for Kids boosts 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 to finish each session, which helps your son or daughter reinforce the new skills he or she has discovered. 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.

- 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
