This week’s Featured Makers were Will and Dareli! When we asked Will how he felt about his project being featured, he said, “I was extremely happy! I actually jumped up even though I didn’t know what it was at first. I was just full of happy energy for the rest of the day!” Dareli uses Tynker to practice digital art, which is awesome!

We also posted an article about Annie Easley, an incredible woman in STEM who was crucial to technology that created hybrid vehicles…and space flight as we know it! In her words, “You can be anything you want to. It doesn’t matter what you look like, what your size is, what your color is. You can be anything you want to, but you do have to work at it.”
