This week’s Featured Makers were Roscel and Lara. Roscel stumbled upon Tynker on the internet, taught herself how to use it, and has been coding (and loving it) ever since! Lara uses Tynker in a unique way – to bring her toys to life. Super cute. We also posted our Earth Day project. It plays on a popular kids’ game trend right now – clicker games. Check it out!

Keep contributing to the Tynker community! Parents and teachers can connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Tynker Community Forum. Kids can start learning to code and creating for free with the Tynker app for iPads or by playing our Hour of Code activities!
