Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Hampton Roads – Newport News, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach region make computer programming more fun than ever before! 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 feel an amazing sense of accomplishment as he or she learns how to program, design and animate his or her own video game that can be shared and played with friends (talk about cool!).

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 learn about skills that are vital in the 21st century, but he or she will also gain much more confidence by progressing towards new and exciting goals each week. Each session has a distinct objective and outcome, and includes a wrap-up activity, so your child will reinforce the skills he or she learned and feel accomplished at the end of each class. We will also send you a link to your child’s programming project, so you can be involved in his or her incredible progress and share it with the whole family.

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!
