Week Ten

Sadly it is the last week this week, so with Easter on the way I thought I’d have a look for some relevant projects to try. The first has a gingerbread house in it (and some snow, which isn’t that Easter-y, but there are a few odd patches still on the ground). The second has […]

Week Nine

Here are the links to the Scratch projects from last week for those that want to continue with them: Lost in Space (animation): https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/lost-in-space/3 Ghostbusters (game): https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/ghostbusters/3 Chatbot (talking computer?): https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/chatbot/3 You are welcome to go back to any of the previous projects you haven’t done. If you are feeling adventurous how about pitching the […]

Week Eight

Scratch seems to be the favourite activity, so here are some more projects to try. They should be slightly shorter projects that will fit better into our 45 minutes. Lost in Space (animation): https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/lost-in-space/3 Ghostbusters (game): https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/ghostbusters/3 Chatbot (talking computer?): https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/chatbot/3 Remember to ask for help if your Scratch login isn’t working properly so you […]

Week Seven

Choices, choices, choices this week. If you are enjoying Scratch then pick a Scratch project to work on. Alternatively there are the Micro:bits available if those are more fun. If you want to try something new you can try Python. There are projects that use Trinket (Python seems to be working on Trinket even though […]

Week Six

Still working on getting access through the firewall for Trinket and the HTML/CSS bits, but we do have the Micro:bits to work with again. We stared with the Interactive Badge, there’s the Rock, Paper Scissors and more after that: Interactive Badge: https://codeclubprojects.org/en-GB/microbit/interactive-badge/ Rock, Paper, Scissors for the Micro:bit: http://codeclub.aptanet.org/2018/02/rock-paper-scissors-microbit/ Fortune Teller: https://codeclubprojects.org/en-GB/microbit/fortune-teller/ Against the Clock: […]

Week Five

Sadly no HTML / CSS until the school firewall is sorted (ask me if you are curious to know what that means). We do have some BBC Micro:bits to try out though, so first things first, let’s get to know them with a project (no need to login to anything this time): Interactive Badge: https://codeclubprojects.org/en-GB/microbit/interactive-badge/ […]
