creative coding for kidsCreative Coding–Mixed Levels
with Creative Coding 4 Kids

Creative Coding teaches your child to code by helping them make their own custom video games! Our project ­based, multi­-level classes are amazingly fun yet very effective in teaching creative problem solving AND emotional resilience. As your creative girl or boy has fun bringing their ideas to life, they iterate through the emotional cycle of Coding  (idea­>excitement­>effort­>frustration­>more effort­>triumph!) With our
support and positive encouragement. Repeating this cycle not only builds great coders, but more importantly, develops emotional persistence that will help students enjoy taking on new challenges in all aspects of their lives. Visit: http://www.creativecoding4kids.com
