This week we’ll be bringing everything we’ve learned so far – loops, if/else statements, variables and movement, together to make a game – Boat Race!
Our Pythonistas will be working on their ISS Mission Zero submission, and also looking at how we can interface the Raspberry Pi with switches and lights!

Boat Race Starter Project:
We’re back from Mid-Term!!! This week we’ll be making a Paint Box program in Scratch, and working on our Mission Zero Python program – only a few weeks left to go until submission date for both teams!
Scratch STARTER PROJECT – “Paint Box”:
Activity Notes – “Paint Box”:
Last week we had fun playing with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift S VR headsets, getting used to moving around in Virtual Reality!
This week, we’re back to reality proper with our next Scratch activity – Chat Bot – this exercise focuses on input and output, and introduces the “if” block and conditional statements.
For our Python people, we’ll be doing more SenseHAT development getting ready to submit our code to the International Space Station!
Who you gonna call??? GHOSTBUSTERS!!!!!!!
Our Scratch Activity this week is making a ghost catching game, which introduces Loops and Variables!
Our Python coders will be programming the Raspberry Pi SenseHat, and learning more about the Python language.

This week we’re going to make a Space game in Scratch! We’ll be animating spaceships and moving them around the screen!
For our Python coders, we’ll be starting learning to use Python and getting used to typing in programs rather than using code blocks to program.

Welcome back to Code Club! We’ll be meeting every Monday at 3pm after classes – check back here, and on Twitter for the latest info and details of the next session’s activities!
Today, we’ll be checking that the PCs are working, and starting on our first Scratch Activity which you can find here:
A relaxed session today as it’s just before the Easter holidays!
This week, we’ll be looking at the Boat Race game again from last week, and also doing some 3D printing, and programming a Drone using Scratch!!
As it’s the last session before the holidays, we’ll also have some games on the Nintendo Switch to play for some relaxation!
We had a busy session on the 18th of March with our Mission Zero team putting the finishing touches to their Astro-Pi program which will run on the International Space Station!
The code club members also worked on the Boat Race game in Scratch!

Astro-Pi – Mission Zero:
NB – THERE IS NO CODE CLUB NEXT WEEK (the 11th March).
Today we’ll be making our own art program in Scratch, working on the “Paint Box” activity and looking at Loops, and IF – Else statements.
We’ll also be continuing to work on our Raspberry Pi submission in Python for the Mission Zero project to get our program loaded on the Raspberry Pi on the International Space Station!

This week at code club we’ll be using what we learned last week about variables to make a Ghost catching game with a score, and a timer.
We’ll also be working on our AstroPi project and deciding what we’ll submit for out program to run on the Space Station (submission date 20th March!).
