Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Rhode Island, 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.▼
Building Games — and Confidence!
Confidence is boosted with our Coding for Kids programs! Each class has a clear objective and outcome, so your child will work toward a goal and be proud to share his or her accomplishments with you each week. There are also wrap-up activities to finish each session, which helps your son or daughter reinforce the new skills he or she has discovered. 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.
At Each Fun-Filled Session, Your Child Will:
- Learn how to create animations and add characters, sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Create mini-stories and a video game that can be played with friends
- Gain increasingly important 21st century skills — from programming to logic — while advancing his or her own project
- Collaborate with peers and meet new friends!
