A Gift Kids Will Be Grateful For
As parents, we can’t help but be interested in our kids’ education. We make sure they attend the best schools, get enough food and sleep, and we try to instill good study habits.
But where will the jobs be for the next generation? And how can we make sure our kids are best prepared for that market? In the meantime, can we ever get them off of their computers?
The answer is. . . We don’t have to. That’s because it’s Gifting Season and Tynker is having one of our biggest sales of the year on online coding classes. The ability to code gives kids the blueprint for future job opportunities, making their screen time positive and productive.
Millions of kids are already Tynker’ing with interactive coding, featuring self-paced platforms designed to empower their individual creativity.
Learning to code is like learning the rules to an intricate game that will play out for years to come. It’s a skill worth investing in; the difference between dictating your destiny or watching helplessly from the sidelines.
So what exactly is computer coding? Simply, it’s the instructions your computer needs to function, making it possible to create software, apps, games, and websites.
At Tynker, we offer over 3,700 courses and tutorials for all experience levels, starting with kids ages 4 and up. Our award-winning programs emphasize interest-based paths that make learning to code not just fun but fast.
Using picture blocks, your grade schooler will master coding basics and make simple apps, which will lead to developing games, exploring STEM subjects, designing Minecraft mods, and controlling robots and drones.
With the ability to code, your kid will become accustomed to critical thinking and problem solving, which will open up opportunities to create; perhaps one day leading to technological advances in medicine, alternative energy, water conservation, or maybe even the next cool video game.
And you can monitor their progress from the program dashboard as they acquire specific skills, complete coding activities, and earn awards and certificates.
Plus, we offer a 30-day money back guarantee if Tynker isn’t a good fit for your kid. Great. But isn’t there such a thing as too much computer time?
Of course! At Tynker, we believe in moderation. In fact, most of what we offer involves time sensitive modules.
In addition, the precision and persistence that go into coding develops skills that can benefit kids in other subjects, such as science and math, even literature.
Tynker’ing can be a very smart use of kids’ screen time, so consider Tynker an investment in their future and give the gift of coding.
