Community Highlights: July 16 – July 22
Happy Monday! The Tynker community was busy working on Week 3 of the Summer Code-A-Thon last week – our young coders created cooking-themed games and more. Check out some of our users’ amazing work!
Projects of the Week
This project is an interesting take on the “Cooking” theme. Throw food at your classmates and teachers, and dodge the food they throw at you.
This chess minigame challenges you to get the knight to the goal spot with as few moves as possible. The most impressive part of this game is that it prevents the player from moving the knight incorrectly.
Help the princess bake a cake! Put all the ingredients together in the right order.
In this project, you play as a cat. Choose the breed of cat that you are, and try the different toys.
This game will test your reflexes. Press the up arrow to jump over the barriers, and press the down arrow to duck below them.

This week’s Featured Makers were Bella and Asher! Bella looks to her favorite Tynkerers for advice and loves the Tynker community, and Asher told us that he loves to code because it helps him express himself!
Keep contributing to the Tynker community! Parents and teachers can connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Tynker Community Forum. Kids can start learning to code and creating for free with the Tynker app for iPads and Android tablets or with our FREE Summer Code-A-Thon!
