On the Blog:
This week, we featured Noelle, who told me she spends her limited iPad time on Tynker. She’s a fantastic an enthusiastic maker – when we interviewed her, she invited us to “dive into the code” with her!
We also posted an article about Sarah, the maker behind “GirlGuru.” Her projects have been featured many times, and she’s quite popular in the Tynker community!
We’re excited for Hour of Code! To prepare, this article, “4 Tips for a Successful Hour of Code,” went live on the blog.
Keep contributing 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!
