Code Club 21/5/2022 Write up

We had a quieter code club today, 3 attendees, however it was rather productive. Some excellent work on scratch, work on FreeCodeCamp, who seem to have recently rewritten the responsive web design course, never the less we made progress with the new course, and also some HTML / CSS work with Replit.

I have created some more Scratch accounts for us to use at Code Club, even though I encourage people to create their own.

Code Club 21/5/2022

The next Club will be on Saturday 21st May 2022 @ Paignton Library.

We will carry on with what we have been undertaking at previous sessions, hopefully do more with the Lego WeDo and Python.

I have also been working on a series of posts on this website to introduce different topics, the eventual aim of this will be to lead to posts about cybersecurity. So the series starts off with some videos (not mine, but they are an excellent introduction) to the BASH shell.

Code Club 7/5/2022 Write up

We had a quiet code club today, only 3 people turned up, nevertheless it was quite productive as the two young people and their mum who came were working with Roblox and we had a short discussion around Roblox studio and what they do at school with regard to coding. As we can't install anything on the computers, they were using online resources.

Code Club & STEM Group updates 4

Identify different video out connectors. I am making this post, as I may need to ask people what type of video connectors they have on their hardware, this will help them, help me. I can then turn up at a school or other venue with the correct cables.

Code Club & STEM Group updates 3

Pi-Brella

The Pi-brella is a small add on board for the original Raspberry Pi, but still functions on newer models. This had features, such as a buzzer, i/o sockets, a switch and LEDs.

Code Club & STEM Group updates 2

Working on a few resources to support code club, if there are doubts about my ability to put effort in to something then these are clearly misguided.

I am looking for employment to support and help with STEM. At code club & STEM Group, I think there is scope to help with

  • Physical computing
    • Electronics
  • General coding (Scratch, Python)
  • Networking
  • BASH Command line
    • BASH Scripting
  • Data Detox workshops
  • Study skills

Along with a lot more,

A few photos below

Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi, set up with a Breadboard and wires. I just need to re-flash the SDcard.

Bar Graph

LED Bargraph (this can be connected to a PI using Female to Female leads, however using Female to Male leads, it can be connected to an Arduino.)

Traffic Lights

LED Traffic Lights (this can be connected to a PI using Female to Female leads, however using Female to Male leads, it can be connected to an Arduino.)

GPIO Header

The GPIO header allows connection of a Pi to a header on a breadboard for prototyping, the other end (under the board) plugs in to the Pi.

We will hopefully carry on at the next STEM Group meeting.
