With Sylvan's Coding for Kids courses in Oregon, you'll find the perfect experience for your imaginative, technology-loving child! Elementary and middle school children can take part in fun, interactive courses where they can make new friends, create their own video games and gain skills they can use for life. Our courses are delivered in a kid-friendly format, which means your child can enjoy highly visual and interactive activities and cool projects he or she will be psyched to work on each week.
Boost Your Child's Skills and Potential
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Oregon, but that's not all: they're also the perfect way for your child to learn about and develop vital 21st century skills. In fact, the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills we emphasize are increasingly demanded as the digital world continues to grow. Your child will have a great time making digital animations and creating video games — tasks that include important problem solving, programming and basic coding skills.
Build Confidence While Building Games!
Confidence is boosted with our Coding for Kids programs! Classes have clear objectives and outcomes, so your child will make steady progress and look forward to sharing his or her achievements every week. Your child will also participate in a wrap-up activity at the end of each session, which will help strengthen the skills he or she learned in class. 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.
Children In Our Fun-Filled Sessions Will:
- Learn how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Develop mini-stories, working towards a final video game design that can be shared and played with friends
- Build important 21st century skills — including programming, logic and computational competencies — while experimenting with his or her own project
- Collaborate with other kids and make new friends!
