Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Our Coding for Kids courses in Oregon are all about fun and excitement, but they also help kids gain critical 21st century skills. We focus on important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills that are increasingly needed for success in a growing digital world. So your child won't only have fun making video games and creating digital animations — he or she will also pick up essential coding, programming and problem solving skills along the way.
Play and Learn? Now You Can!
Coding for Kids boosts confidence! 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. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s weekly project, allowing you to be a part of the exciting things he or she is doing — and share this wonderful work with friends and family.
