Community Highlights – August 21-August 25
We like to do a weekly round-up of what’s been happening in the Tynker community – and we have some great things to share this week! School is back in session and everyone’s creativity is ramping up. Check out some of our favorite projects, tweets, and more!
Projects of the Week:
Solar System Rap: This funny, educational rap is a great way to learn more about our solar system!
Tap the Tap!: Tap all the objects before they reach the bottom of the screen in this fun, challenging game!
Clash of Clans!: Check out this excellent single-player Clash of Clans remake!
Schools are back in session, which means that classroom Tynker tweets have started back up!

On the Blog:
We produced a lot of blog content this week! Daniel posted about Tynker Blue Ribbon Educator Amy Storer, we learned about Featured Maker Toby (be sure to check out his game, “The Sneaky Spy”), and we celebrated the eclipse with some news about coding and space.
We also kicked off our Women in STEM series with a piece on Dorothy Vaughan and her achievements at NASA!
Tynker in the News:
Some cool Tynker news: a student in New Jersey wrote JerseySTEM curriculum on drones and held a class for the local Boys & Girls Club with Parrot drones and Tynker!
