Welcome to Computer Science Week! In celebration of this week, Tynker for school, the full version, is free! What a wonderful app to get kids interested in coding. Perfect for both for use at home and use in the classroom, coding apps do not get better than this. Can your kids code Sphero so that it does not fall off a stack of blocks? Can they help a dragon walk, eat a firefly, and breath fire to remove an obstacle to get to gold? The possibilities are truly endless with Tynker, especially once kids master the basics of visual programming through the amazing variety of puzzles.
Bottom Line: I had a big, fat helping of nostalgia reviewing this app, not just because of my own childhood, but that of my own kids when they first discovered the joys of reading and puzzles for themselves in the Highlights magazines. Highlights has brought all of the fun of the treasured paper publication that connoisseurs have come to expect and this time, instead of stickers, kids get some great videos to go along with hidden objects and fun nuggets of information heaped out in kid-sized lovable morsels of goodness.
The price will be cut from $2.99 to $1.99 for 7 days
