With kids around the US back in school, the Tynker Community really seems to be ramping up with a lot of great new projects.

Projects of the Week

3D Simulator | V: This project uses a really cool technique that involves stamping to create the appearance of a rotating 3D shape.

pac man spelling: You better know your vocabulary to win this game of Pac Man! This version of Pac Man only allows you to move if you correctly define a vocabulary word.

My Project 40: In this game, you need to help a panda get to all the honey pots. Click on the panda to move him so he doesn’t miss any honey pots. This project was created by Kareyn, a 12-year-old from Texas who has made several featured projects and has been featured on the Tynker blog!

Tynker in the News

NY1, a major cable syndicate, included Tynker’s “Code This Drone” kit with Parrot as one of the three toys they featured in a segment on toys that teach programming. The segment, featuring an interview with Tynker CTO Srini Mandyam, has been syndicated by many other news programs across the country.

Jenny Anderson, a STEM specialist in Vista, California, published a great piece on her experiences using Tynker to teach coding.

Ecole Sir Adam Beck JS, a K-5 school in Canada, wrote a blog post about their experiences using Tynker and their decision to expand the program to teach coding to all students.

This week, I want to put a special spotlight on programming with Parrot drones because I’ve seen so many teachers posting about how much their students enjoy using the Tynker app to program drones.

You can join our maker community by following us on Twitter and Facebook and downloading the Tynker app for iPads and Android tablets to publish your own games and projects. Have a great week!

Tynker enables children to learn computer programming in a fun and imaginative way. More than 60 million kids worldwide have started learning to code using Tynker.
