Notice the Lag Meter – the spinning label at the top. When it rotates slowly, you know the whole project is lagging. That’s an innovative feature we’ve never seen before in a Tynker project!

On the Blog

This week’s Featured Makers were Ryan and Mia. Ryan coded a game as a birthday gift to his dad, and Mia jots down ideas for coding projects when she’s out and about. It’s always fun to get to know some of our amazing users! We also posted about our new app, as well as about our cool golfing Father’s Day project.
