Happy Monday! We love starting out the week by updating you on what’s happening in the Tynker community. The Code-A-Thon is off to a great start! Over the course of Week 1, we saw lots of interesting projects on our theme of fireworks, as well as other fantastic projects. Don’t miss cool games like Super Codey Bros or Block Builder!

Tweets of the Week

Twitter was pretty quiet this week, presumably because everyone’s out of school. We did see these cool tweets from a school in England – they’re just beginning to use Tynker!

On the Blog

This week’s Featured Maker was Kyer! His description of how he gets inspiration is fantastic – “I get inspiration all of a sudden, like a loose untied balloon whizzing around!”
