Hannah Makes Coding Projects Inspired By Her Dog!
Hannah is a 9-year-old from Lexington, Kentucky who has published a bunch of awesome coding projects to the Tynker community, including projects about her dog Asher.
What are your hobbies? Drawing and playing soccer.
What do you want to be when you grow up? An elementary school math teacher.
How did you get introduced to coding? My dad showed us the Tynker app.
How long have you been using Tynker? Four months.
Do you ever look at the Tynker community projects? Yes, I do a lot. They’re very creative and they inspire me.
What’s your favorite feature in Tynker? I like that you can share projects and see other people’s projects to see what you can make.
What’s your favorite thing you’ve made? Probably one of my dog projects. I really like dogs, so I decided to make the dog projects. I have a dog named Asher.
Why do you like to code? Because it teaches you things and you can express yourself when you code. It helps me relax and be myself.
What advice would you give to kids who are starting to learn to code? You can use math to create programs. And try your best.
Hannah’s father Chris started programming when he was in high school and says it’s been awesome to see Hannah and her brother Thomas learn to program as well. Beyond downloading the Tynker app for his kids, Chris hasn’t really needed to get involved in them learning to code: “What I like about Tynker is that I could introduce them to programming and it would be easy enough that they could learn it themselves–and in fact that’s what happened. So really they just come and show me their projects.” Chris says that he’s very excited about Hannah learning to code because it encourages her to uses her analytical skills and creativity at the same time: “She’s very creative, so she’s got the right brain totally. I love that she gets to marry that with the coding and development, engaging the left brain and getting both sides going together. That’s really cool for her.”
Thanks so much for talking to us, Hannah! It’s been so exciting for us to see all the awesome projects you continue to publish. We are always so amazed by what you’ve made.
