When you spend a good couple of hours crafting Valentine cards with a six-year old, and see how they come up with well-thought and apparently accurate complimens for each of their classmates (“You are funny Adam”, “You are kind Tommy”, “You are the best in school Samuel”), you suddenly remember what great Valentines greetings are all about. Instead of just sending a card with a picture of a heart, it’s about saying something meaningful about the other person in a way that brings a big smile to their face.
We at ThingLink are doing two things for this Valentine’s Day: First, we are updating our icons selector with a red heart, and second, we are challenging you to use it and say good things about each other!
Here are ideas of what to add to your greeting:
1- Text: Add friendly notes why you think this person is awesome
2- Picture: Add pictures or fun things you have done together this year
3 – Music: Add a song you want to dedicate to this person
Example: Here is my Valentine’s note to our new customer support specialist Rachel who just joined our Palo Alto team on Monday. We think Rachel is so awesome and hope you will get to meet her soon too!
Send us your Super Bowl Story by annotating a picture with all of the elements of your Super Bowl celebration; who is attending, what you are eating, where you are celebrating, and what is happening — the possibilities are endless!
Upon submitting your image, you will be automatically entered in a random drawing for a $200 Amazon gift card!

Over the course of the next few months we’ll be collecting, curating and encouraging our community to create science content to support Next Generation Science and STEAM. Many ThingLink users are creating wonderful content in the various categories of STEAM and we want to make it easier to discover and use content. We also want to engage our teacher and student community to contribute to the continuously growing database of interactive content.
