A room full of girls coding!

A room full of girls coding!

We were so excited to run this programming workshop exclusively for girls organized by Girls Innovate! and hosted by nestGSV at Redwood City, CA. It turned out to be a fantastic event, with a room full of enthusiastic girls and their parents who came together to learn computer programming using Tynker.

“Great workshop! We had three girls programming in the car in the way home. Now we have a jealous older brother at home! Thanks!!” – reported by a dad at the workshop.

Way to go, girls. Keep on coding!

Sophia, a 5th grader in a Redwood City, says, “I think Tynker is fun and interactive. Tynker will help you prepare for future programming experiences. Some parts are challenging, some parts are easy.  It’s perfect!”

Anshika, a kindergartener says “Love it! Its easy peasy! I want more, more, more!” Wow Anshika, we are impressed!

We leave you with what parents had to say about the workshop:

Parents Watch Daughter Coding

“…My two girls (ages 7 and 9) attended the Tynker workshop and it was amazing!  We’ve worked with Tynker before, but for them to be in a room full of other girls interested in programming, it just changed everything. Looking forward to future events! Gratefully, Sasha”

“Thank you for a great workshop! My daughter can’t stop talking about it, and I’m so thrilled she had this opportunity to spark an interest in programming! – Sanobar Mehta”

“Tynker is a great vehicle to systematically teach children programming skills in a very fun, playful and intuitive way. The best is, the children think they are playing, but actually, they are learning how to program” – Fariha Hilaly

    I have a six year old daughter who loves playing on the computer. Any suggestions on getting her started?

    Hi Todd,

    Our iPad app is a fun mobile introduction to basic programming concepts great for kids age 7 and younger. Puzzle challenges reinforce the early concepts learned in the Introduction to Programming online course.
