Happy Monday! The Tynker community was busy working on Week 3 of the Summer Code-A-Thon last week – our young coders created cooking-themed games and more. Check out some of our users’ amazing work!

Projects of the Week

FOOD FIGHT! by Nova Evo

This project is an interesting take on the “Cooking” theme. Throw food at your classmates and teachers, and dodge the food they throw at you.

(K) Night Moves by Cnacamb

This chess minigame challenges you to get the knight to the goal spot with as few moves as possible. The most impressive part of this game is that it prevents the player from moving the knight incorrectly.

On the Blog

This week’s Featured Makers were Bella and Asher! Bella looks to her favorite Tynkerers for advice and loves the Tynker community, and Asher told us that he loves to code because it helps him express himself!

We also posted an article about our new AR course, and one about a school in Georgia using Tynker to fulfill their mission of teaching their students to code!

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 with our FREE Summer Code-A-Thon!
