On the Blog:
This week we had two Featured Makers: Gibson, who was really successful during our Summer Code-A-Thon, and Rebecca, who coded an anti-bullying project – then impressed her whole school at an assembly! They both impressed us with their advanced, colorful projects.
Ready for National STE(A)M Day? This article is full of great ideas for celebrating (and if you look closely, there’s a hidden acrostic poem!)
We also shared this article all about our new teacher dashboard and its features.
Tynker in the News:
We’re excited to announce we’ve been named the winner of Best Coding App or Tool in the Edvocate Awards!
