This week’s Featured Makers were Jesse and Boyan. Jesse builds water reticulation systems in his free time and said, “Other kids should try coding because coding is really fun – Tynker makes it fun!” Boyan spoke to the difference between playing games and making them. “When you make a game there are a lot of possibilities, but when you play it you’re limited.”

We also posted our tips for parents regarding online safety – check them out!
