This week’s Featured Makers were Rosalee and Nathan! Rosalee gave great advice to other young coders – “Do your best and never give up!” How have Featured Maker Nathan’s coding skills improved since he started using Tynker? “I think I’ve improved quite a bit, because I used it a lot since I found it really fun.”

We also posted this article highlighting Springfield Public Schools’ use of Tynker and Chromebooks!
