Why Coding?


There’s been a lot of buzz about kids learning to code lately. This year, almost 200 million students around the world were exposed to coding through the Hour of Code event. And over 90% of American parents want programming added to their child’s curriculum.¹

In today’s digital world, coding is a fundamental skill alongside math and reading, but too few kids have the opportunity to learn to program because it is rarely taught in school.

Tynker’s mission is to create a fun and engaging platform where children not only learn to program, but also have opportunities to be creative using code.

DTE is a licensed education center to offer Tynker classes.

How your children learn:

When children jump straight into a traditional programming language like Python or Javascript, they get bored and discouraged. Tynker strips away the syntax and provides exciting activities so children can learn the programming concepts they need to code in any language without all the frustration. With Tynker’s courses and activities, kids have fun while they learn, so they stay engaged and continue learning and creating.
