With our new STEM Project Library — featuring ready-to-use project templates that support many academic areas — you can easily enhance STEM learning by making coding a part of what you already teach, while adding a new level of fun for your students.
Integrate Computer Science into any subject area.
Browse through the coding projects by clicking “Explore” in the top navigation bar. Select “STEM Project Library”. You’ll see “TEMPLATE” projects and “COMPLETE” sample projects for Science, Math, Social Studies, and English.
To see a few examples of what students can do with code to show what they’ve learned and make learning fun, just click on the finished samples below. You can also use these “COMPLETE” projects to demonstrate the concepts you are teaching in an engaging way.
TEMPLATE Projects provide easy to follow completion instructions.
There are many project templates currently available, and more will be added in the coming months. TEMPLATE Projects feature starter code and a tutorial to guide your students to complete the project, step by step.
1. Browse projects and add them to your account as “favorites”. If you’re not already a Tynker teacher, sign up today.
2. If your school has purchased a Tynker for Schools license, you will also be able to view the starter code and tutorial for each TEMPLATE, and assign projects as lessons to your students. Each project can also easily be adapted (remixed) to support any curriculum topic. When you remix projects, the possibilities for curriculum tie-ins are endless!
3. If you don’t have a Tynker for Schools license yet, we’ve unlocked a couple of the templates for you, so you can get a glimpse of what the starter code and tutorial instructions look like. Just click on the titles below to open the templates, then save them to your Tynker teacher account.
Computer programming can be a fun way to engage kids in the material you are already teaching, while incorporating technology learning and developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The best news? You don’t have to have experience with programming to teach with Tynker and use these projects. And Tynker can actually make teaching easier!
“When we introduced Tynker into the 3rd-5th grade classrooms, kids were so engaged in math, language arts, social studies and science — it actually made what we already do easier. And at the same time, we are upleveling our technology learning and STEM content. It wasn’t one more thing to teach.”
Layne Henn, Technology Coordinator at Loess Hills Elementary.
