What do Children learn?
Pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, spatial visualization, algorithmic thinking, how to debug programs. Introduces concepts like sequencing, repetition and conditional logic. Reinforces basic geometry concepts while using programming to draw angles and lines.
Tynker (www.tynker.com) inspires kids to create and collaborate through programming, in a visual, intuitive and imaginative way. Over 10,000 schools and 8 million kids have started coding with Tynker -- building critical computational thinking skills for future success.
The Tynker programming language is inspired by visual programming languages, such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from CMU, and other programming languages, like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.
