Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Our Coding for Kids courses in Virginia 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!
Coding for Kids boosts confidence! Classes have clear objectives and outcomes, so your child will make steady progress and look forward to sharing his or her achievements every 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.
At Each Fun-Filled Session, Your Child Will:
- 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!
