Community Highlights – November 17 to November 23
We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Hopefully you spent time with family and friends, and maybe even used some of your free time to work on your coding skills with our Thanksgiving coding projects. This week we were excited to see the ways our Tynker community is using code to get creative! Read on to learn more about what’s happening in your Tynker community.
