Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Missouri are tailored for kids who love to be creative and imaginative — and who love playing with technology! 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.
Boost Your Child's Skills and Potential
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Missouri, but that's not all: they're also the perfect way for your child to learn about and develop vital 21st century skills. In fact, the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills we emphasize are increasingly demanded as the digital world continues to grow. Your child will have a great time making digital animations and creating video games — tasks that include important problem solving, programming and basic coding skills.▼
Build Confidence While Building Games!
Coding for Kids boosts confidence! Every class is built around a clear objective and outcome, which means your child will progress towards a goal and be excited to talk about his or her achievements each week. Your child will also participate in a wrap-up activity at the end of each session, which will help strengthen the skills he or she learned 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.
You Can Expect Your Child To:
- Learn how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Develop mini-stories, working towards a final video game design that can be shared and played with friends
- Build important 21st century skills — including programming, logic and computational competencies — while experimenting with his or her own project
- Collaborate with other kids and make new friends!
