We’ve been wondering for the last six months what kind of kids we are going to be raising now that “Toys R Us” kid isn’t going to be a thing anymore. If our instincts are right it could be a “Tynker” kid. Chances are by now that you’ve heard of the coding world Tynker, where kids of all ages are learning to code games, software, Minecraft mods and more through an easy to understand online platform that quietly teaches them along the way.

Tynker is geared towards kids 7 and up and over sixty million kids have learned to code using the platform. Like many other platforms Tynker starts kids off with graphical style coding but as they learn they can start making apps, games fly drones, learn Python and so much more.

With Tynker kids can take these soft development and coding skills and turn into makers powering robots, drones, machines and more.

The Tynker platform is great for home and school. In the classroom Tynker offers a comprehensive curriculum with grade based lesson plans that allow teachers to focus on students. The lessons are easy enough that teachers can truly learn as they go and get just as excited about coding as their students do.

Within the Tynker educator community there are thousands of PBL projects that allow teachers to integrate STEM/STEAM and coding into their standards aligned curriculum. For the more advanced stuff and to get more ideas for the classroom Tynker hosts webinars and even offers online premium training.

Tynker is already being used by over 80,000 schools. Administrators, districts and superintendents love their easy to understand pricing. 

The best part about Tynker is students are learning valuable skills they need for careers in STEM/STEAM and beyond. They’re also getting real skills that they can hold onto and take with them.
