Power Up Your Child’s Potential

Our Coding for Kids courses in New York aren’t only a lot of fun: they’re also an effective way for your child to start developing crucial skills for the 21st century. In fact, by emphasizing sought-after skills in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), we prepare students to succeed in an increasingly digital world. Your child will be developing important programming and coding skills as he or she has a blast creating digital animations and video games.

Building Games — and Confidence!

Our Coding for Kids programs are a real confidence booster! 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. 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.

  • 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
