Every week, we bring you the best of the Tynker community – from projects that we love playing to makers who inspire us.

Featured Makers

We featured two more kids this week: Danae, a sixth grader from Canada, and Max, a fifth grader from Ohio.

Danae says that coding with Tynker has made her want to be a programmer when she grows up – and that the Tynker Community in particular inspires her to build creative projects.
