Community Highlights: February 27 – March 5

Tynkerers have been coding up a storm! Here’s what’s new in the Tynker community from this past week:

Featured Makers

We featured four more amazing makers this week: Madi, who wants to be an elementary school teacher, Jonah, who wants to be a coder, Ethan, who wants to be an animator, and Natasha, who wants to be a writer. Here are a few highlights from their interviews:

Ethan on how learning to code has changed how he sees video games: “When I play video games, I don’t think of it like I normally would when I was little. What I think is, ‘How could I make that?'”

Is there anything you wish was different about Tynker? “Not really. Out of all the coding apps I’ve used – I’ve used quite a few of them – Tynker is my favorite.” – Madi
