Community Highlights: January 27 – February 2
Every Monday we share the best of the Tynker community with you! From feeding chickens to dancing pandas, we saw some fantastic projects this week. We also saw lots of creative tweets – kids (and teachers!) are having a great time coding with Tynker. Have fun playing these awesome games, and don’t forget to tweet us about your classroom’s coding sessions!
Projects of the Week:
CHICKEN FEEDER – Move the chicken around the screen with the joystick. Help it eat all the chicken feed before time runs out.
Surgery:Heart – You are now a heart surgeon – get rid of the bad germs in the heart!
Sawsage vs Hamburger – A hot dog and a hamburger have an epic battle. Who wins?
Can-Can Panda’s – Watch pandas dance the can-can.
Escape The Building – You are trapped in a room. Can you find your way out? Remember the secret code!
