One teacher’s enthusiastic response to learning about Tynker’s compatibility with drones: “I can’t wait to fly drones with Tynker. If school is this fun I will never want to retire.”
Drones? Yes, I can't wait to fly drones with Tynker. If school is this fun I will never want to retire. https://t.co/pnuesj7N13
