There was another busy session at Coderdojo @ the Warehouse!
We warmly welcomed four new ninjas i.e. Tom, Art, James and Sandra.
SCRATCH was, as usual, making their way through the tutorials, while the apps and JS groups were all working together on their chat application which will eventually be available on the website.
The HTML group was working on different websites and the projects group was mainly working with Raspberry PIs. That includes Jasper who was playing around with Sonic Pi, Finbar who was editing the code of Minecraft Pi edition and I made an LED blinker.
We hope to see you all next week and don’t forget that registering for the Coolest Projects is now open.
In the Scratch group, there were six new beginners today who worked their way through the tutorials. Everyone else worked on the online version rather than the offline version they had been using before.
In the Python group, it was Alex’s first time doing Python and Lucy was using Python to paint. Mika was working on his Raspberry Pi.
Another group were working with the Raspberry Pi kits that CoderDojo Foundation funded for Coderdojo@The Warehouse and they were working through exercises to make the LEDs flash.
In the Projects group, Jasper was working with his Raspberry Pi to make an LED flash and Harvey was working on a transmitter that transmits on any frequency from 0-200 Hz and a Raspberry Pi robot and on his Coolest Project.
