Tynker is a new kids programming environment that is currently in a limited release. Their team is coming to the Silicon Valley Coder Dojo to lead the April sessions – sign up for the waitlist here to be alerted when more tickets are available.
I have been using Tynker with a couple Breakout Mentors students and believe it’s going to be extremely successful. I’m not at liberty to share details, but here is what they say on their website:
Tynker’s language extensions, built-in physics engine, character editors and other tools make it fun and easy for kids to unleash their creativity. Schools love Tynker because it offers them an easy to use cloud-hosted system for delivering a customized Computer Science course across multiple grades with a ready to use curriculum, classroom management and more. Tynker is the platform of choice at many leading schools – see what educators are saying.
If you request an invite, I’m sure you’ll be the first to know when Tynker is officially released. I’ll share more details then!
