Community Highlights ~ December 17-22
Kids are celebrating coding in classrooms and making stellar projects all over! Plus, the release of Tynker Junior gives us even more reason to get excited: Now young children ages 5-7 can start to understand programming ideas like sequencing, pattern recognition, loops, counters, and events. Read on to learn more about what happened this week in the Tynker community!
Choose your character and fly high in the sky! Make sure you dodge the clouds because they will ground you!
Collect all the coins simply by clicking and your character will move up in the pathway of the coins, but be careful not to pick up the red coins because they are harmful.
Dodge the falling walls and pick up your friends to increase the chain following behind. Garner the biggest chain and help as many people as you can!
This user created a very hard game. This boss is trying to eliminate you but you must use the directional pad on the right side of the screen to direct the wall around Cody to protect him against the fireballs from the boss!
This game is super hard, but you can beat it! Navigate with the up and down buttons to avoid the rocks and beat the game!
This user created a realistic Pokemon Stadium! Choose your Pokemon at the beginning of the game and defeat your opponent!
