"Introducing Tynker" will be the topic of this 2 -part event

Tynker is a new computing platform designed specifically to teach children computational learning and programming skills in a fun and imaginative way. Tynker is inspired by Scratch from MIT. It is a completely browser-based implementation written using Open Web standards such as Javascript, HTML5, CSS3 and does not use Flash.

Tynker’s language extensions, built-in physics engine, character editors and other tools make it fun and easy for kids to unleash their creativity.
