Virtual Coding Camps Schedule
“The Tynker Live Classes were great. The small group and high level of instructor interaction provided the friendly support and guidance my child needed to learn and have fun while doing it. In a time where so much of her instruction is online and she’s kind of “screened out”, she truly looked forward to Tynker time and insisted on signing up for additional sessions. It was truly a highlight of her week.”
Teri C., Parent
“Since our children are going to be spending much of their time on computers in the future, it is a great idea for them to learn the basics of coding, even if it is just for appreciation. Tynker Live Classes was a great way to introduce the basics in a fun, interesting and socially interactive way! We loved it!”

Frequently asked questions
Why should kids learn how to code?
At Tynker, we know that coding is quickly becoming a universal second language, a 21st century life skill that every kid should have in their toolbelt going forward — one that can propel them to becoming part of the next generation of innovators.
Kids and teens can learn how to code at any age or skill level. Coding is an incredibly creative tool that gets kids dreaming—and doing! Kids who code learn to solve problems, think critically, and see projects through to completion.
Coders think big, like saving the neighborhood, the environment, and, yes, lives! The ability to code is a "great equalizer" and with it the power to change not just your child’s future but the world’s too.
What is Tynker?
Tynker is the #1 online and mobile coding platform in the world for kids and teens. Over 60 million kids have learned the basics of coding through Tynker and become makers, developing apps, building games, programming robots and drones, modding Minecraft, and much more.
Learning to code using traditional methods can be frustrating and challenging for kids. However, Tynker empowers creativity with code. Our revolutionary self-study platform makes it fun to learn how to code, with drag-and-drop visual coding, a game-based story-driven approach, and interactive tutorials.
We also offer a built-in tutor to guide kids through hands-on learning, interactive explanations, and how-to video guides to promote progression through courses and activities. And, with our mobile apps, kids can take Tynker on the go, making Tynker positive screen time for children of all ages and experience levels.
