This week’s Featured Makers were Annette and Colten. Annette told us how much she appreciates using Codey to help her learn to code, and Colten said he’s the only kid in his class who likes homework! Don’t miss the chance to check out what they had to say.

We also posted a cool 6-step “brain bootcamp,” as well as a guest post by educator Jon Hidalgo. He wrote, “Tynker helps students feel confident, and gives a success story to share with their fellow classmates.”

Prior to the event, our Miami Hackathon got press in the Miami New Times as well as South Florida Times.
