With Sylvan's Coding for Kids courses in Utah, you'll find the perfect experience for your imaginative, technology-loving child! Elementary and middle school children can take part in fun, interactive courses where they can make new friends, create their own video games and gain skills they can use for life. 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.
Help Your Child Level Up
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Utah, 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! 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. On top of that, we provide a link to your child’s weekly programming project, which allows you to be involved in his or her exciting progress and share it with family and friends.
You Can Expect Your Child To:
- Develop critical 21st century skills such as logic, programming and computational competencies
- Learn how to animate, create characters, and add sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Create mini-stories and work towards a finished video game that can be played with friends
- Work together with other kids and make new friends!
