- The startup, to date, has been focused on making the core concepts around programming more accessible to younger children by offering a number of tutorials and tools they can interact with in order to build games with fun characters through a visual, drag-and-drop interface.
- In the past three years, over 23 million kids have begun coding with Tynker and its curriculum is now being used in more than 20,000 schools across the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and New Zealand. Around one to two million users log into to Tynker each month, and the company is growing its user base by 500,000 new sign-ups per month, as well.
- With the additional support for “internet of things” devices, Tynker’s users can now do more than program software environments – they can control real world objects by building apps that fly drones, control toys and command robots.
