Tweets of the Week

Looks like these kids are learning how to test and debug code as they program their drones!

Cute tweet from a technology teacher.

Great quote from this teacher about stepping out of her comfort zone.

How adorable is this young programmer!? She’s so excited to mod.

Pretty cool that Tynker is seen as a privilege, not a task!

Sounds like this class is learning a lot about collaboration as they learn to code.

These little programmers are just so cute!

On the Blog

This week’s Featured Makers were Brian and Anna. Brian likes to code because “I like playing my own games and improving them!” Anna is a huge Minecraft modding fan – check out what she had to say!

We also posted an article listing tips for healthy screen time habits. Tips include turning off screens before bedtime, emphasizing real-life friendships, and having kids earn screen time.

Keep contributing to the Tynker community! Parents and teachers can connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Tynker Community Forum. Kids can start learning to code and creating for free with the Tynker app for iPads or by playing our Hour of Code activities!
