On the Blog

Our Featured Makers this week were Helen and James. Both of them want to be astronauts! Helen is only eight but has been coding for three years, and James studies outer space in his free time. We have some pretty impressive users!

We featured educator Christine Whitmire, who said, “Tynker also gives everyone the opportunity to be creative, be heard, and be recognized,” and shared a post about our booth at the Spring 2018 CUE conference. We also celebrated the fun holidays this week with a Pi Day project and a cool St. Patrick’s Day coding game!

In the News

We saw a couple great articles in the news this week about how kids are using Tynker! The Sahuarita Sun cited Tynker as a great way to use tech to help kids learn, and TribLIVE.com shared how Newlonsburg Elementary 4th graders are using Tynker in their technology class.

 

Keep contributing to the Tynker community! Parents and teachers can connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Tynker Community Forum. Kids can start learning to code and creating for free with the Tynker app for iPads and Android tablets or by playing our Hour of Code activities!

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.
