Community Highlights: January 28-February 9
So much has happened in the last two weeks in the Tynker community! Tynker Junior is now available on iPhone, so young children just learning to read can code anytime, anywhere. Kaustav Mitra recently joined Tynker as Vice President of Schools, and teachers across the country are winning drones at conferences like TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association)! And as always, students and teachers are engaged in discovery, storytelling, and taking knowledge acquisition to new heights as they code with Tynker. Read on for the best from our community!
