Tynker’s 2020 Educational & Parenting Award Wins

Tynker’s 2020 Educational & Parenting Award Wins

As we approach the end of 2020, it’s clear this was a year like no other. Though the challenges were great, we at Tynker also look back on the progress we’ve made — most importantly, helping thousands of young coders begin their programming journey! 

Our mission is clear, and we’re focused on making the best platform possible to teach kids to code while they have fun. That’s why we wanted to share with you some of the awards from educational and parenting organizations that Tynker has won in 2020. We’re proud of these awards, but prouder still because they mean we’re doing our job in helping your kids excel.

Here are some of our favorite highlights from our reviews:

Tynker is an excellent resource to teach young, curious minds coding techniques… My kids were incredibly bored when school switched to online learning at home so my husband and I decided to give this app a try in an attempt to keep them engaged. 

Our kids, nine and twelve, jumped right in and loved it immediately. While our nine-year-old enjoys the game-aspect and challenges Tynker provides, our twelve-year-old has found her passion for programming. As parents, we love that we have found a way to keep our children engaged (especially during times like these) while they gain new skills that promote both interactive and educational learning during screen-time play.”

“The software teaches a plethora of skills that will elevate students’ (and adults) cognitive abilities to new heights. Tynker teaches children how to program games and animate stories in a clever, easy-to-use approach that involves blocks of pre-programmed code. Students learn logic and reasoning while letting their imaginations lead them through the learning process. The exploratory, learn-through-play approach is fantastic!”

“As a teacher I loved that I could show the Code View of the Block Code after the students created their games and stories. They were blown away that they could write such complicated code.”

“Ten out of ten–a perfect score for a revolutionary product!”

We’re excited to share these awards with you, so you would know that you’ve trusted your children’s coding education to the very best! Thank you for being with Tynker during an unforgettable 2020 and we look forward to a healthy and safe 2021.
