Projects of the Week

JellyBlock – Third Level Test!: This physics-based game actually isn’t using Tynker’s built-in physics engine! It’s just using math to simulate gravity and the player’s movement.

Tweets of the Week

This week, the Tynker office received letters from three 3rd graders in Kansas who were doing a report on coding and video games. They interviewed Tynker game developers Amanda, Matt, and Chris over Skype in front of their entire class, asking questions like, “How do you learn to code? Does it get easier the more you practice?” and “What can you do with coding?” Their teacher even tweeted a picture of the interview!

A class of students in Spain shows off what they’re coding on the Tynker app:
