We are delighted to bring to you the Tynker iPad app  to make it easy for kids to learn coding at home, and on the go. The  app is a great way for kids with no prior knowledge of programming to learn the basics of logic, and complements our self paced courses and school curriculum.

Tynker iPad App

 

Tynker’s visual programming language makes it easy for children to get started with programming by simply dragging and dropping visual blocks to build a program. The Tynker iPad app contains puzzles that children solve by programming visual code blocks to achieve a goal. The initial release includes the following adventures to engage kids with appealing story lines:

  • Puppy Adventure, where kids use logic and loop variations to help Pixel, the lost puppy, find his way home;
  • Lost in Space, where kids learn more advanced programming concepts like conditional logic and apply spatial orientation skills to lead astronaut Biff to his moon base avoiding asteroids and black holes; and
  • Sketch Racer, where Snap the Turtle can be programmed to draw complex geometric shapes using simple commands.

The puzzles are structured to gradually increase in complexity. By solving them, children learn to recognize patterns; break down a problem into smaller steps; engage in programming concepts like sequencing, loops and conditional logic; develop computer drawing and algorithmic thinking skills; and debug programs.
