The word is out–Tynker brings you the Forward to the Moon Mission Patch Design Challenge, inspired by NASA’s space missions! Code your own patch to win a video call with a NASA expert–and get excited about human spaceflight along the way!

Featured Maker Paarus likes a good coding challenge: “It’s fun and I like difficult things. In the Tynker courses, the dragon one is really hard and becomes fun when you try to solve it.”

Tynker Blue Ribbon Educator Laura Smith uses technology to help students get excited about learning: “[Tynker] meets [students] where they are and gives them something they can be proud of accomplishing!”

Keep contributing to the Tynker community! Parents and teachers can connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Tynker Community Forum. Kids can also start learning to code and creating for free with the Tynker app for iPads and Android tablets!

Tynker enables children to learn computer programming in a fun and imaginative way. More than 60 million kids worldwide have started learning to code using Tynker.
