On the Blog

This week’s Featured Makers were Alex and Hannah. Alex discovered Tynker at school! “Our school usually gives middle schoolers iPads and they had Tynker on there. I decided to try coding, and it was really fun!” Now, he’s been coding with Tynker for over a year. Hannah likes to code because, in her words, “I can let my creativity flow! I can play what I’ve made and I’m proud of it.”

We also posted this article containing our fun Mad-Libs Mother’s Day project. The final product is hilarious – check it out!
