Coderdojo @The Warehouse #22

Posted on February 23rd, 2016

This week over at Coderdojo @ The Warehouse we had another very busy week, even though Derek, Maciej, Jasper & Harvey were at the Aipu.
Over at Python, we worked on several projects on our Raspberry PIs. Alex and I managed to change our skins in Minecraft Pi edition. And, Odhran and us made a Fizz Buzz project where it print all of the numbers from 1 to 100 and after each multiple of 3 it also prints fizz, after each multiple of 5 it also print buzz and after each multiple of both 3 and 5 it prints fizz buzz.

It was another great week at Coderdojo @ the Warehouse. We had over 40 Ninjas in!

We also welcomed a new mentor Hannah, who works with the Scratch group.

Over the course of the past few weeks, the projects group was working on different cool projects, especially making modifications for PyGames and Minecraft Pi edition. They used only Python and the Terminal to do so. We are all very happy with the PIs and we are having great fun with them.

Minecraft Pi edition Is a free version of Minecraft that you can play on the Raspberry Pi and modify. PyGames are a selection of simple Python games available to play and modify on the PIs.

We made it so that in Minecraft, blocks were placed underneath you as you ran. The block that was placed depended on the number that you put in your code. Alex made it so that as you ran blocks were being deleted all around you.

I added different difficulty levels to the game Squirrel. Squirrel is a very simple PyGame which is somewhat similar to games like Agar.io or Katamari Damacy, only that with squirrels. squirrel game

If you made a nice project, you can volunteer  to  write about it on the blog.
