Boost Your Child's Skills and Potential

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.

Play and Learn? Now You Can!

Our Coding for Kids courses boost 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 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. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s weekly project, allowing you to be a part of the exciting things he or she is doing — and share this wonderful work with friends and family.

At Each Fun-Filled Session, Your Child Will:

  • Learn how to create animations and add characters, sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology 
  • Create mini-stories and a video game that can be played with friends  
  • Gain increasingly important 21st century skills — from programming to logic — while advancing his or her own project
