Coding for Pre-readers
Learning to code has never been easier! Tynker Junior is the fun, interactive way to spark your kid’s interest in coding. Kids (ages 5-7) learn coding basics by connecting together picture blocks to move their characters.
5 Fun Adventures
- Get introduced to block coding as you meet all the characters
- Design your own aquarium with different sea creatures, props and music
- Help Gillie the goldfish move through a maze to collect treasure
- Learn sequencing, pattern recognition and critical thinking
Solve Coding Puzzles
Tynker Junior was inspired by the award-winning Tynker programming language, used by 60 million kids and in over 100,000 schools worldwide. The language and user interface are designed to make learning to code easy for pre-readers, using picture blocks, a tap-based interface with no dragging, friendly voiceovers, helpful hints, and a subtle increase in difficulty to motivate completion.
