Computer programming becomes more fun than ever before when you choose Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Albany, Schenactedy and Troy region! Using innovative, kid-friendly technology, our hands-on programs equip students with important technical and creative skills they can put to use in the classroom and beyond. Your child will enjoy a strong sense of achievement as he or she begins to code, program and animate a custom video game that can later be shared and played with friends (how cool is that?!).

Big Smiles and Big Leaps Forward

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. 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. 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 Blast:

  • 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!
