Celebrate the World Cup by kicking off a soccer coding adventure with Tynker on Kahoot!

Get your students ready to take the field and put their coding skills to the test! With these exciting new computer science kahoots from Tynker, learners can get ready to compete in the Coding Cup for this year’s Hour of Code.

As technology advances and powers more of the world around us, coding is becoming a more valuable skill every day—now a key foundation for many of the careers of the future. Now, learners of all ages can bring coding to life like never before with the power of play, thanks to the brand new collection of kahoots from Tynker on Kahoot! Academy!

At Kahoot!, we’re passionate about future-ready learning. That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with Tynker from BYJU’s—an official sponsor of World Cup 2022, the biggest global sports event of the year—to get kids excited about coding by harnessing friendly competition. 

Tynker is a leading global K-12 creative coding platform, which has empowered over 60 million students of all ages worldwide to learn coding and computer science. Their award-winning platform enables students to build coding skills through engaging and creative learning experiences, while also developing foundational skills like critical thinking and problem-solving.

With Computer Science Education Week right around the corner and the World Cup in full swing, it’s the perfect time to kick the lesson plan up a notch with Tynker’s new kahoots, where learners can explore coding fundamentals while testing their soccer knowledge. 

Playing these kahoots is also a great way to start your students’ training for the Coding Cup! In this interactive and collaborative experience, participants can design their own virtual soccer team, using code to train their team and play the game, and compete with other students from around the world.

“We’ve seen how transformative Tynker has been in classrooms across the world, and we’re excited to work with Kahoot! to offer additional resources that help spark students’ curiosity and exploration,” said Kaustav Mitra, Vice President, Educator Programs, Tynker.  “Educators may use Tynker’s kahoots to create social learning experiences that extend hands-on learning on the Tynker platform. We’re excited to bring soccer World Cup excitement to teachers and students everywhere with our Coding Cup game and kahoots!”
