Code Club 19/8/2023 Write up

So this week, we started the attendees with more Hour of Code activities. We are slowly starting to move towards learning text based programming languages and away from Scratch.

The hour of code activities allow for block programming but the resulting block code be viewed as java based code which is really useful for building that link.

In order to support this I had a go at Mario secret advantures which helps to build some of the many important features of gaming, movement, collision, scoring etc.

I have just made a video and uploaded to peer tube, my system is a little slow so I have left out the music part, but the main point of this exercise is to use loops to reduce code needed.

Next code club 2nd September.

Code Club 22/7/2023 Write up

We had three new starters today, so as everyone is interested in Minecraft, I started everyone off with the Hour of Code Minecraft activities. This went really well,. kept everyone engaged with lots of valuable learning taking place.

I have also figured out how to set up Rocks and diamonds so we can skip completed levels and carry on from where people got to previously. I need to do this as the computers reset each time they are turned off, which means that progress data is also lost.

Code Club 1/7/2023 writeup

So today we did more of the usual coding. I spent some of the time trying to fix the issue I had with the Pi pico routine I have been working on. Please see earlier post.

This now appears to be fixed (or at least working a lot better than it was) and there should be video and photos up on the library website and social media pages.

I will get a video made for this and uploaded to peertube and post the new code block in a new post.

Next week is the STEM Group on 8th July 11 to 15:00 at the library.

I have put some of the links from this below as a list.

If you also sign up to the Raspberry Pi foundation, you can track your own progress and collect badges. This is optional, as this presents more ways for data to be collected.

As before if you would like to save work, please sign up for a scratch or Trinket account so you can save project progress and carry on at home or at the next session.
