Even better, in order to encourage better STEM participation in young women, the Mattel-Tynker partnership also provides the chance to learn real coding skills online. Using game-based activities and functional code, Tynker lets young girls learn the basics of programming and coding logic through six Barbie-themed lessons.

“It’s critical that all young learners have an opportunity to explore the possibilities available in STEM fields, and Tynker’s Barbie programming experience is a valuable tool to introduce kids of all ages to these concepts while building their coding skills,” explained Krishna Vedati, Tynker’s co-founder and CEO.
