Why Use Tynker?
It’s no secret that learning to code is great for children’s academic, mental, and social development. With more than 50 million users around the world, Tynker is the leading solution to empower kids to learn coding and become makers. So what exactly makes Tynker the best solution for your child? Our revolutionary approach to helping kids learn to code, individually tailored learning paths, more than 1500 fun activities, and award-winning platform means that children of all ages can benefit from learning to code with Tynker!
Revolutionary approach to learning coding
We also focus on scenario-driven learning to reinforce important concepts and motivate kids to proceed through courses. Our interactive approach introduces programming concepts as kids build mini-games, solve puzzles, create coding projects, complete daily missions, earn exciting badges, and unlock new characters. This is why kids love learning with Tynker – even though they’re mastering important programming concepts, they just feel like they’re playing a game!
Individually tailored learning paths
Tynker is focused on interest-based learning. It’s a simple philosophy that means that kids who already love to play with drones or Minecraft will be more inclined (and genuinely excited) by the chance to integrate Tynker with those interests, expanding their potential for play while learning new skills.
For more hands-on learners, our drone and robot programming courses are the perfect way to apply coding to the world around them. The Parrot Mambo Code lets kids program their own minidrone to perform flips and stunts, transport objects, or even fire a cannon; kids can also use Tynker to program Sphero and Ollie robots. And with LEGO WeDo 2.0, kids can use programming to bring their LEGO creations to life!

“As a parent, I’m so satisfied. I’m seeing my son’s progress, and [Tynker] keeps up his interest in so many areas…It’s hard to motivate kids in serious programming, but this app gets kids more and more into coding through the games!” – Sravanthi, mom of Featured Maker Nitish
“What I’ve learned is that this isn’t just playing a game. This really allows a child’s creativity to come through, which I think is phenomenal. I think it’s great that it teaches the child the steps involved, because I think it helps with their reasoning and analyzing a situation, as well as problem solving.” – Maria, mom of Featured Maker Gabriella
“I love [seeing Brenda’s projects] because she’s not just playing somebody else’s game. She gets to create with her own imagination, so it’s really good.” – Misty, mom of Featured Maker Brenda
