This week’s Featured Makers were Braden and Gabriel. Braden discovered Tynker per the recommendation of one of his friends. He told us, “I love to code because it allows me to make whatever I want – the sky’s the limit!” Gabriel is another really impressive maker; he’s been coding with Tynker (and loving it!) for four years! 

Our latest Women in STEM is Hedy Lamarr, a movie star whose invention paved the way to WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS.

 

Keep contributing to the Tynker community! Parents and teachers can connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Tynker Community Forum. Kids can start learning to code and creating for free with the Tynker app for iPads and Android tablets or by playing our Hour of Code activities!
