CoderDojo – Halloween Special
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:
Ghostbusters – A ghastly game for Halloween!
It is the night before Halloween, so tonight we will create a ghost themed game.
Try to complete all the add ons!
Make something scary for Halloween!
Make a ghastly game, creepy animation or scary story to give us a fright for Halloween. You can find some creepy sounds here (login with username nelsoncd and use same for password). And you can find some graphics here.
Do you know how to import sounds and graphics into Scratch? Ask for help if you don’t.
Make sure to share your project and add it to this studio.
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.
3D Computer Aided Design with TinkerCAD
Learn how to make 3D models using Tinkercad. Tinkercad is an easy-to-use 3D computer aided design (CAD) tool. You can quickly turn your idea into a CAD model for a 3D printer with Tinkercad.
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.
