I'm really happy to be talking about this -- finally!
My son, , has been working at a really cool Silicon Valley startup for about a year. They've been in "stealth mode," so he's banned me from blogging about it.
Well, their official public launch is today at 7am Pacific (as in right now), so finally I get to tell you about it!
The company is Tynker ( http://www.Tynker.com ), and their mission is awesome. They want to make software programming a standard part of the curriculum for children in elementary and middle schools.
Tynker's software enables kids to build games and animated stories using something like electronic LEGO -- building blocks of environments, objects and actions that kids have fun playing and creating with. It all happens in the cloud. Once kids build projects, they can share them with friends to be played on Android phones, iPhones, laptops, Chromebooks -- whatever.
But while the kids are playing, they're actually learning programming skills, critical thinking and gaining a foundation for science and engineering education.
Tynker has been running pilot programs at over 20 schools, and apparently the kids are building some amazing things.
Teachers are apparently loving Tynker because it's a comprehensive, turn-key package of software, instruction and everything they need to teach these critical skills. Plus, it's easy for them to teach because the kids love using it.
The company was founded by the same geniuses who created Plusmo a few years back (which they sold to AT&T).
Anyway, you're going to be hearing a LOT about Tynker, but wanted you to hear it first from me. : )
