Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Rhode Island are tailored for kids who love to be creative and imaginative — and who love playing with technology! These interactive programs make it fun for elementary and middle school children to develop skills they can use for life, as well as make new friends while creating their very own video games. 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.
Power Up Your Child’s Potential
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.▼
Build Confidence While Building Games!
Confidence is boosted with our Coding for Kids programs! There are clear goals and outcomes for every class, so your child will be excited and proud to share his or her progress each week. There are also wrap-up activities at the end of each session, which helps students consolidate the skills they've picked up in class. On top of that, you will get a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can see all the exciting things he or she is up to and share his or her wonderful work with family and friends.
During Each Session, Your Child 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!
