Tynker Giveaway - Ends 12/21

Tynker Home Course Giveaway Hosted by Pea of Sweetness

Sponsored by Tynker

Tynker Hour of Code

Tynker enables children to learn programming and design thinking in a fun and imaginative way. Tynker offers interactive courses for children to learn programming at their own pace at home and curriculum and grade specific programming courses for schools.

I think is a great idea for kids to learn at an early age, think if you got them started early then this would be something they could work on thru school and into college and actually know a lot before college begins. I think this is a smart idea in a technologically advancing age where our youth can learn and be better for things later in life!

Tynker's Introduction to Programming is recommended for children in grades 4th-8th, but see how Emilee at Pea of Sweetness has been adapting it to use with their 7 year old son, who will be starting 2nd grade in a few weeks, by checking out her full Tynker Introduction to Programming Review on Pea of Sweetness.
