4th graders taught this teacher about Tynker’s Swift integration.
I love it when 4th graders teach me new things – I had not yet seen the Swift integration in @gotynker . Looks like a nice blocks/code link. pic.twitter.com/7Wx8bxj1Ps

On the Blog:
As with last week, we featured two amazing makers: Sophie and Mckenna! Sophie’s “Purpleberry” projects are really popular on Tynker, and Mckenna is so excited about making quality projects that she creates character sketches before she codes. We also posted this article about cool new jobs in tech. We’re busy spreading the word about HOC; these three articles about HOC went live on the blog this week!
