CodeLab on Tynker Live

CodeLab on Tynker LIVE is a fully produced DIY maker show for students and teachers. Every Tuesday to Friday, we’ll connect live on YouTube to share step-by-step tips and tricks to build the most amazing Tynker coding projects ever! From animation, artwork, motion projects, seasonal projects, Hour of Code projects, NASA, Barbie – we’ll build it together. We use a teacher-based moderated chat to gather questions from our student audience, and students help guide us as we create. Let’s create together, with CodeLab!

Check out our upcoming schedule below. Simply ask your students to connect at the specified time, no registration needed! They can also get help by joining the moderated chat at https://gotyn.kr/tynkerspacechat.
