Community Highlights: June 5 – 11
Happy Monday! Every week, we bring you the best of the Tynker community – from projects that we love playing to makers who inspire us.
We featured one more young maker on the Tynker blog: Grace, a nine-year-old from Scotland. Grace wants to be either a doctor or a coder when she grows up, and she has a great attitude about the Tynker Community:
“I like to code because it’s really fun to make your own game and decide what will happen in it. It inspires me if someone has a better game than me because it means I can look at it and see what they’ve done and if I can do anything different with my game.”
Projects of the Week
Missile Command: This is an excellent planet defense game that is superbly executed. It’s really fun to play!

One of my students drew a very accurate portrayal of how I feel about Tynker Coding. @tynkercoding has made computer programming so accessible for my students and they absolutely love it. Such a great skill for them to learn so young. #teachkidsprogramming #codingforkids #tynkercoding #4thgrade #4thgrademath #realworldmath #ilovemyjob #teachersofinstagram #ilovemystudents #teachersfollowteachers #thiskidhastalent #4thgradeartists
