Spring Break Guide – Part 2!

We hope you’ve been enjoying the break so far! We want to see what you can come up with during this time — if you have something fun you’re working on, email with a link to your project.

We’ll look through all of the submissions and showcase some of them at our first meeting back after break.

If you need help getting started making your own project in Codesters or Khan Academy, take a look at these guides:
