Tynker, Parrot Offer All-in-One Drone Coding Bundle for Kids

Tynker, a game-based platform that teaches kids how to code, has teamed up with Parrot to create the Parrot Mambo Code bundle, offering a Parrot Mambo minidrone and a six-month premium subscription to Tynker.

The minidrone comes with a mini-ball launcher and grabber for aerial combat, 50 plastic balls, a USB cable, and a battery; the Tynker subscription includes eight mobile (iPad) coding courses, 18 online coding courses, over 350 puzzle levels, more than 100 tutorials, and a virtual drone flight simulation course.

Tynker says its drone coding lessons offer a straightforward, structured approach to get kids ages 7-14 flying drones in minutes. New pilots can practice their drone flying skills in a virtual environment before they are ready to execute the commands on a real drone.

Sample missions include programming a drone’s flight path from takeoff to landing; building a drone controller to pilot a drone in real time; programming flips, turns and other aerial stunts; integrating loops and variables to make geometric patterns; coding games such as Flappy Drone and drone racing; and taking aerial photos.
