Projects of the Week:
super kitty episode 3: Check out this awesome animation about a cat superhero.
My Pet Dragon: Take care of a baby dragon. If you feed it and pet it enough, it levels up!

On the Blog:
This week, we posted the last article of our “Soft Skills” series. This one explores ways coding can help build communication skills.
Our featured maker this week was Camille! Definitely check out her project “Interview With a Goldfish.” It’s adorable!
Tynker in the News:
Tynker was mentioned in this article from Jersey Evening Post about women in tech. “Whether they’re into fashion, animals, cars or cooking, kids coding tools like Tynker can show the limitlessness and simplicity of app development, creating a fun approach for engaging with younger girls.”
We were also named in this article about educating the next generation with drones, from Droning ON.
