Code Club 4/12/2021 update

The next Club will be on Saturday 4th December 2021 @ Paignton Library. Please contact the library to book.

We will carry on with what we were doing last session, hopefully expand on what we were doing with the Micro:bit

In order to try and support this further, I have created a little connector board to help connect components to the Micro:bit computer.

Connector Board 1

Board and servo. The issue with the servo normally is that connecting to a Micro:bit with croc clips you need a solid connection. If you remove the connector you are simply left with very thin, multi core wire.

Connector Board 2

This board just bridges the gap, plug the board connector in to the top.

Connector Board 3

Then connect the crocodile clip(s) to the other set of connectors

Connector Board 4

A close up of the connection.

Please note: There is nothing special about doing this, I just soldered this up in the hope it may make things easier at code club. The servo could be swapped out for other sensors, for example a moisture sensor.

Update 2/12/2021

I have also created an LED board to go with the overall set of boards being created.

Connector Board 4

Code Club 20/11/2021 write up

A really productive code club today. Small group, which was split between FreeCodeCamp, Scratch and Micro:bit. I have put some crocodile clips to one side for the next code Club.

So with the Micro:bit, we got an LED to light up, then controlled this with the built in switch, and eventually connected a speaker (which didn't work expected) so we connected a headphones.

Code Club 4/10/2021

I am back at Code Club today, 2nd session since our return. If you are still not sure what Code Club is, then you have clearly being living in a cave since about 2012. Anyway, it is a coding club for children, generally 9-13 years of age.

The Paignton Club is a little more advanced, in that some of the attendees are working through a responsive web design course.

It would be really good to get MORE code clubs in Torbay, and in fact would be really nice if those clubs could collaborate, share expertise, maybe some resources.

Scratch Spiral Project

So in this activity, we are going to try and produce a spiral using Scratch code. This is similar to what Spirograph [TM] produces.

It should look something like this when complete.

spiral1

Open up Scratch 3 in a browser and create a new project.

  1. Start off with the when Green Flag is clicked block

Green Flag

  1. Set the Sprite to the centre of the stage

Set To Centre

  1. Add a block to erase anything drawn on the stage from previous projects, then put Pen Down.

Erase and Pen Down

  1. Now add the Main Loop blocks as follows

Main Loop

  1. Your final code should look like this

Final Code

When run, you should see it draw circles on the screen, move and re-draw, eventually building up a layer on layer spiral pattern with circles.

The method here for drawing circles could be used in other projects too.
