Community Highlights: April 21 – April 27
Every Monday we bring you the best of the Tynker community. Between a project imitating the life of a YouTube star, a simulation of Windows PC, and a Tynker version of a recorder, this week’s featured projects will surely impress you. See if you can beat “Tynker’s Hardest Game”! We also saw some great tweets this week – don’t miss them or our blog update!

On the Blog
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.”
