Tynker Teams Up With Mattel to Teach Coding

Tynker is proud to announce a collaboration with Mattel to create engaging new content to teach children how to program. We are excited about this partnership because it supports our mission to provide high-quality programming education to all children. We believe learning to program with Tynker prepares children for 21st century careers, challenges them intellectually, and gives them tools to become “makers.” We have created four free Tynker programming activities for the Hour of Code using two of Mattel’s most popular brands, Monster High and Hot Wheels.
