Power Up Your Child’s Potential
Our Coding for Kids courses in New York 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.▼
Build Confidence While Building Games!
Confidence is boosted with our Coding for Kids programs! 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 take part in a wrap-up activity to end each session, which ensures the skills he or she has picked up can be strengthened and reinforced. 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.
At Each Fun-Filled Session, Your Child Will:
- 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!
