Here are the activities that each group will be working on today:
If you are new to CoderDojo and new to computer programming this is where you start:
Scratch – Guided
Show And Tell
Take a project that you did this term and work on it some more to customise and improve it or make it totally different. Then around 7:30 we will do a show and tell.
Scratch – Freeform
Make your own side-scroller game
Today we will do a show and tell of your side-scroller games (or other project you have been working on).
Python is the language that the Raspberry Pi group is using to program the Raspberry Pis. Use the login you have already created or if this your first time, start by clicking the Sign Up button in top right corner of screen and create an account for yourself to track your progress.
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 RaspberryPi (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.
