Blast into Big Fun with Sylvan
Interaction, engagement and motivation are the name of the game with our game design courses. Not only will your child develop vital 21st century skills, but he or she will also build confidence by working toward a goal 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. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s programming project, letting you be a part of the exciting progress and share the accomplishment with the whole family.
Your Child Will Have a Fantastic Time:
- Developing skills that will put him or her on the road to success, like problem solving, logic and physics
- Learning to use innovative Tynker™ technology to design and create characters, animations, sounds and special effects
- Creating stories that will lead to an exciting final project: an original video game that he or she can actually play with friends!
- Collaborating with fellow students and making friendships that will last a lifetime!
