Community Highlights: April 6th-April 12th
We’re so excited to see so many fantastic user projects and teacher tweets this week! New features, like the District Dashboard for district admins, clearly demonstrate why Tynker is valuable for schools, and Tynker Blue Ribbon Educator Janeen Cohen shapes her students’ view and use of technology for the better! Plus, this week: Variables are a foundational programming concept, and you can learn about them with your child with unplugged activities. Read on to check out this week’s community highlights!
Projects of the Week
Like the classic snake game on your old phone, this user wanted to add a twist by implementing an obstacle in the form of a spider! Watch out!
In this game, choose either the turtle or the bear. Move close to each other to duke it out and declare a winner!
This game tests your wits and memory. You must remember the color of the attackers in order and click the button that corresponds with each color. Good luck!
Avoid the purple bombs and gather enough points to upgrade your sword!
Battle your way through the empire’s forces! You can swing your lightsaber or block the oncoming enemies.
