Available on the Apple App Store, Tynker is an application that teaches young children Apple’s Swift Syntax by disguising itself as fun, interactive games.

Within the 115 levels that can be found in Tynker’s two free courses, kids will be able to learn the basics of programming. The earlier levels will teach kids how to program by representing bits of code as Lego pieces, while later levels will have kids figuring out how to build a basic game of their own.
