Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in South Dakota are perfect for children who are creative, imaginative and love playing with technology! These interactive courses help elementary and middle school kids have fun, get motivated and gain life-long skills as they create their very own video games. We provide programs that have kid-friendly formats, which means your child will take on highly interactive challenges, tasks and activities that present new and interesting ideas every week.

Modern Skills for Modern Kids

Our Coding for Kids courses in South Dakota aren’t only a lot of fun: they’re also an effective way for your child to start developing crucial skills for the 21st century. In fact, by emphasizing sought-after skills in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), we prepare students to succeed in an increasingly digital world. Your child will be developing important programming and coding skills as he or she has a blast creating digital animations and video games.

Play and Learn? Now You Can!

Our Coding for Kids programs are a real confidence booster! 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. 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. 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.

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!
