Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Portland 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 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?!).

Blast into Big Fun with Sylvan

Kids and parents alike will love our game design courses because they’re interactive, engaging and highly motivating. 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. In fact, every session has a specific objective and outcome that's reinforced by a wrap-up activity. Best yet, you will receive a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can check out all the amazing things he or she is creating and share his or her accomplishments 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!
