On the Blog:
This week’s Featured Maker was Alyanna. She wants to be an architect who codes in her free time to relieve stress! We continued our “Women in STEM” series with this article highlighting Frances “Fran” Allen and her amazing work with IBM on compilers, and most recently, we posted this article about ways kids thrive in the Tynker community.
