How old were they when these global changers wrote their first line of code? Bill Gate, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and Elun Musk? The answer is 13yrs, 10yrs, 13 yrs and 12yrs respectively. One thing they all have in common is that they started young. Let this summer be the first of many, or a continued endeavour of your kid(s) nurturing their hidden potential for robotics and programming by building the right foundation through coding apps, games and animated stories that they can play on their computer and even share with family and friends. Our curriculum from Tynker is designed to fit each student’s learning style and needs. It's a summer for them to learn, imagine, collaborate, while creating their own games rather than playing games created by others.
