Kids are creative and they love technology. Seeing what my daughter can do with Legos and Minecraft proves that Kids love to build. Coding is another way to build, and if it’s simplified and made fun, kids can, not only do it, but also enjoy it.
Tynker is a browser-based program to help kids understand the logic behind computer programming. It works by giving them a syntax driven system of building blocks that they can use to create games, stories, animations and other creations.
The Maker Mom has a good review of Tynker and a chance to win a version.
