Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Our Coding for Kids courses in Pennsylvania aren’t just big on fun: they’re also a great way for your child to build critical 21st century skills. Focusing on in-demand STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills, we equip students with competencies that can help them thrive in an ever-growing digital world. Your child will have a blast creating video games and animated stories while developing vital problem solving, programming and basic coding skills along the way.
Build Confidence While Building Games!
Our Coding for Kids courses boost confidence! Every class is built around a clear objective and outcome, which means your child will progress towards a goal and be excited to talk about his or her achievements each week. Your child will also take part in a wrap-up activity to end each session, which ensures the skills he or she has picked up can be strengthened and reinforced. We provide a link to your child’s weekly programming project too, enabling you to see what kind of exciting progress is being made and share it with friends and family.
