February half term Activities

As it is half term this week, I am sending out a few activities. These are from the Computing Unplugged resources. I have also included some links to other activities.

I am undertaking, this as part of the Paignton Library Code Club. Hopefully we can get this going again virtually.

  1. Mind Reading Magic
  2. Binary Challenge
  3. Guess My Number

You will need items such as; Pens, Card, etc to make up the resources. You may need to ask a grown up to help cut card up.

E-SAFETY

Being safe while online is really important, there is a really good resource here which may help, with activities.

The Scratch team have a special studio for users to share Halloween related projects

Add project links to the comments section and one of their curators will add to the studio.

Full stack development

looking at the West Country Jobs website. It looks like they are, or were, looking for Full Stack Developers.

As code club is about inspiring people to learn IT / Development skills, it goes without saying that this HAS to, in some way, lead to opportunities for paid employment.

Free Code Camp, offer a course on Full Stack Development.

Python Text Adventure Game

Welcome to the 2nd day of the EU Code Week activities, presented as part of Paignton Library code club.

So today, there is an activity on Building a text based adventure game using the Python Programming language.

As with other activities you can probably use Repl.it to complete this and collaborate with others.

This activity is also mentioned on the going further but is presented here as part of EU Code Week.

Udemy Scratch course

So if you are just starting out with programming. Scratch is considered a good starting point.

Udemy offer the following

Free Scratch Programming Tutorial – Scratch Game Programming for Young Adults | Udemy

Which can be accessed here and looks a great starting point and should also complement the code club materials I have sent out previously.

Support

Other than the support offered by Udemy, I am happy to support via the Qoto discourse forum.

For more info on the Paignton Code Club please see the About page.

Going further – CodeCademy present a course to explain what a programming language is

If you use a range of providers then you learn skills, perhaps in a different way. Learn what works for you and gain better understanding of topics and yourself.

We are now listed as an event for EU Code Week 2020. Details here.

So what does this mean?

  • Activities posted every other day
  • Hopefully more people taking part

I have schedulled some more advanced activities, but started off with a Scratch course, then moved on to a Python Text Adventure game activity.

If anyone is interested please get in touch via the about page.

Even though Code Club is still remote, we can still have a go at this, so maybe time to dust off the Raspberry Pi and have a go.
