This week, we featured two more kid makers: 9-year-old Timothy from London and 14-year-old Connor from Maine.

Check out their profiles to learn why Timothy says it’s important that all kids start learning to code early, and why Connor prefers Tynker to other coding apps.

Tynker in the News

The TOSAs Talking Tech podcast devoted the first half of this week’s episode to Tynker and sharing what they learned in the Blue Ribbon Training last week. They are tremendously enthusiastic about the program and about everything they can do with Tynker.
