Community Highlights: July 30 – August 5
Happy Monday! The Tynker community was hard at work submitting projects to Week 5 of the Summer Code-A-Thon last week – our amazing young coders came up with some awesome quiz games. Check out some of their work!
Projects of the Week
This quiz has lots of tricky questions that only Minecraft pros will be able to answer.
This user created a quiz about popular Tynker users and useful code blocks.
This is one of the best quizzes we’ve ever seen in Tynker!
This user animated a full music video for the song “Just Like Fire” by P!nk. Users enjoyed this project and gave it plenty of Likes!
In this game, play as a leopard running through a city. Avoid all the obstacles by jumping with the spacebar.
This take on the Quiz theme will test your knowledge of the Harry Potter books and movies.

We saw two great tweets from this teacher this week – her class is hard at work!

We like, we like to…code! Students are working hard to complete the @gotynker tutorials to add an enhanced understanding of programming blocks and capabilities using Tynker! Telling jokes, dancing characters, flying penguins and more. pic.twitter.com/jqzyYaNmiS

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!
