Featured Maker McKenna thinks learning to code is helping to prepare her for the future! “It will help me get a job! It will help me get a degree and kind of gives me an idea of what I want to be when I grow up.”

Tynker Blue Ribbon Educator Laurie Guyon uses coding as a transformational learning tool! “I choose Tynker because it’s engaging to students, visually appealing, and challenges them to persevere.”

Last week the winners of the Design a Mission Patch Challenge and their classmates spoke with NASA experts via video chat! Read more about the sessions.
