Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Virginia are perfect for children who are creative, imaginative and 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. We deliver our courses in a kid-friendly format, meaning your child can expect to enjoy highly interactive activities and take on cool challenges that he or she will be excited to resume each week.
Help Your Child Level Up
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Virginia, 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!
Our Coding for Kids programs are a real confidence booster! Each class has a clear objective and outcome, so your child will work toward a goal and be proud to share his or her accomplishments with you 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, 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.
You Can Expect Your Child To:
- Create a video game and animated mini-stories that can be shared with friends
- Discover how to create animations, characters and effects using intuitive Tynker™ technology
- Develop 21st century skills, including computation, programming and logic
- Team up with other kids and meet new friends!
