Computer programming is a blast with Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in the Roanoke and Lynchburg region! 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 pick up crucial 21st century skills, but he or she will also experience the confidence boost that comes with completing tasks and goals every 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. We will also send you a link to your child’s programming project, so you can be involved in his or her incredible progress and share it with the whole family.
Your Child Will Have a Great Time:
- Learning to use cutting-edge Tynker™ technology to design characters, animations, sounds and special effects
- Creating storylines and continuously working towards building a video game that he or she can play with friends!
- Developing in-demand skills, such as problem solving, logic, physics and more
- Collaborating with classmates and making life-long friendships!
