This week was full of impressive projects featuring everything from robots to unicorns! We also saw lots of fantastic tweets – kids (and teachers!) are having a great time coding with Tynker. Have fun playing through these awesome games, and don’t forget to tweet us about your classroom’s coding sessions!

Projects of the Week:

Creepy Crawlies(inspired by Flash!) – Use your flashlight and escape the house before the creepy crawlies get you!

Tweets of the week:

Coding makes grading fun for this teacher!

Cool – this school held a coding competition in which they used Tynker! This tweet shows the winning group, the Tynker Thinkers!

Cute class coding their own fidget spinners!

This teacher recounted that after spending time coding with Tynker, her class wanted to stay and code after class!

Always great to hear feedback like in this tweet – “Year 2 are absolutely SMASHING coding!”

On The Blog:

We added an article to our Women in STEM series this week featuring Dr. Mae Jemison, who has spent her life breaking barriers in STEM. This week’s Featured Maker was Isaac! He was adorable, loves Tynker, and has even had another project featured since his interview. We also posted a cool new infographic, highlighting the number of students, schools, and countries that use Tynker.

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!
