On the Blog

This week’s Featured Makers were Zac, Erin, and Connor! During Zac’s interview, his parents told us that he is allowed to use Tynker after his responsibilities are taken care of…and he hasn’t missed a day in three years! Erin told us that she loves seeing her imagination come to life when coding, and Connor loves Tynker so much that he even has a few favorite blocks!

Our Featured Teacher this week was Adrian Santesteban from Williams Middle School in Houston. He reported that when he assigns Tynker, “no one complains about the class assignment” and his students stay engaged.

We also posted “Why Coding is an Investment in Your Child’s Future,” linked here, and compiled this article detailing all our product updates for this spring. Check them out!
