Tynker Launches 16 new Comp Sci Courses

Tynker has launched 16 new computer science courses designed for use in K-12 classrooms.

Featuring gamified learning activities, the 16 new courses are being launched at this week's ISTE conference in Denver and include three JavaScript course, 12 STEM programming courses and a drone programming course developed in partnership with Parrot, a company that produces drones.

"To date, over 32 million kids have been introduced to computer programming through our online courses, apps and in-class teaching platform. We've had significant demand to expand into STEM subjects and makerspace arenas, so it's incredibly rewarding to be able to offer these exciting new courses," said Krishna Vedati, co-founder and CEO of Tynker, in a prepared statement. "We hope that our new upper level courses in JavaScript, STEM and drones will inspire an even greater number of students to embrace coding as a path to enhancing their learning and careers."
