This week, we went to FETC in Orlando and BETT in London. We met some amazing teachers, many of whom were already using Tynker to teach coding! It was so exciting to talk to them about what’s new at Tynker and how they’re using Tynker in their classrooms. Here are a few highlights from the Tynker community this past week:
