This week’s Featured Makers are William and Auburn! William is proud of his progress – he told us, “I used to only be able to change people’s code, and now I can do things like create my own games. It feels pretty cool – on one project I now have 99,000 views!” Auburn also loves creating with code. Her advice to other young coders? “Start small first, then gradually start adding new steps as you go to make a better project.”

We also published a blog post about College and Career Readiness. Check it out to see how learning to code prepares kids for college and beyond!
