Jupyter experimentation

Further to recent videos on Jupyter notebook, I have been doing some simple experimenting to get the feel of this.]

This reat for writing and data visualisation. As the following two example screenshots show. I have not fully written the code here, but I have made modifications. The table now shows total rows and columns after I did some research and figured out how to count columns.

Code Club 20/8/2022

The next Code Club will be on Saturday 20th August 2022 @ Paignton Library, we will carry on with what we are doing, mostly Hour of Code, block based programming, Scratch and the Free Code Camp responsive web design course.

We need MORE people in Torbay to come forward and run Code Clubs. Code Clubs could really benefit from working together too, so we can share expertise to benefit those who attend. We can then come together at STEM group meetings and share further.

Pandas data science tutorial

So following on from previous posts, here is a Tutorial for the Pandas data framework (if that is the right term). Hopefully it is useful.

How to Install Anaconda (Python) and Jupyter Notebook on Windows 10

Further to my post on Jupyter notebook, I am posting a link to another tutorial on how to install Anaconda and Jupyter notebook on Windows 10.

If you are using Linux or another operating system then there are other tutorials that will cover this.

Jupyter Notebook intro

If you are interested in Sciences and I think with this specifically data science or science generally then it seems that Jupyter notebook is very popular and powerful tool.

The following is an introductory video.

If there is interest, perhaps we can look in to this at a future STEM group meeting and try and invite someone along who may be able to help explain and or demonstrate further.

Code Club 16/7/2022 Write up

It was fairly quiet again today, probably due to the weather. Nevertheless it was a good, productive session and attendees left having learnt a few more skills.

Lots of good coding with Hour of code activities too.

So very positive going forward.

  • The next Code Club will be on Saturday 6th August 2022 @ Paignton Library,
  • Next STEM Group meeting is Saturday 13th August 2022.
    • Part the plan for this STEM session is to look at the August Space Telescope Science Institute lecture about the James Webb Telescope lecture video.

Code Club 18/6/2022 Write Up

Next code club is :- Saturday 2nd July 10am to 12:00 Paignton Library & Information Centre

So a busy session today. Before the session started, I set up a drinks station with a jug of water, bottle of juice along with some paper cups.

Today, attendees worked on Scratch, HTML / CSS, I also had two attendees complete Hour of code. I also helped an attendee with their laptop, in so far as connecting to a monitor as their laptop screen is not working. They left with an HDMI cable so they could at least use it at home connected to a TV or monitor.

I think hour of code is a really good icebreaker for sessions, esp as the theming for Minecraft, Starwars and Frozen should appeal to a wide range of users.

Lucy also dropped in with a notebook and a large lever arch file for the STEM group resources.

During the session the four netbooks were also charged. These will be used to help teach the GNU / Linux command shell and Shell scripting to who ever is interested, however this also links in with wider projects to help people who want to self host.

So some really good work today, people are already booked in for the next session. I am still working on getting the lego Mindstorms working.
