Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Knoxville region make computer programming more fun than ever before! Using innovative, kid-friendly technology, our hands-on programs equip students with important technical and creative skills they can put to use in the classroom and beyond. There's nothing like seeing your child enjoy a sense of accomplishment after designing, coding and animating a video game that can be shared and played with friends (so cool!).

The Fun Starts Now

Interaction, engagement and motivation are the name of the game with our game design courses. Not only will your child learn about skills that are vital in the 21st century, but he or she will also gain much more confidence by progressing towards new and exciting goals each week. Each session has a distinct objective and outcome, and includes a wrap-up activity, so your child will reinforce the skills he or she learned and feel accomplished at the end of each class. Best yet, you will receive a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can check out all the amazing things he or she is creating and share his or her accomplishments with the whole family.

Your Child Will Have a Great Time:

  • Developing skills that will put him or her on the road to success, like problem solving, logic and physics
  • Learning to use innovative Tynker™ technology to design and create characters, animations, sounds and special effects
  • Creating stories that will lead to an exciting final project: an original video game that he or she can actually play with friends!
  • Collaborating with fellow students and making friendships that will last a lifetime!
