Here are the activities that each group will be working on today:
(If you are new to CoderDojo and have little or no previous experience coding you can start in the Newcomer’s group. Talk to a leader if you are not sure what group you should be in.)
If you are new to CoderDojo and new to computer programming this is where you start:
Scratch 1 (Beginner)
Today we will work on the Parallax scrolling activity. Click on the link below and follow the instructions in the videos.
Scratch 2 (Intermediate & Advanced)
Continue working on the top down shooter game game
Follow the video guides to make a top-down zombie shooter game in scratch.
Show And Tell
We will do a ‘show and tell’ in a week or two where you will have a chance to show us your version of the game. Feel free to use your own ideas in your version of the game.

Introduction to Robotics
This session is run by Nathalie. An introduction to robotics using mBot robot kits and a block programming language called mBlock which is similar to Scratch.
Raspberry Pi (with Microcontrollers and other cool stuff)
A collaborative group exploring how computers can interact with the outside world through a range of sensors and controllers. Primarily we’ll be using the Raspberry Pi (http://raspberrypi.org) computer in conjunction with Arduinos (http://arduino.cc) and along the way we’ll learn about Python, C and C++ programming, digital and analogue electronics and about working together.
