Code Club 20/7/2019 – Write up
Another productive Code Club. This week we were working on existing projects and learning about layers using an another web based image editing tools, PAC MAN game going well. Also attendees working on a project that has multiple mini games.
Starting to hit limits on Scratch or to do what we want requires far more code than needed.
Laptop is now working better. Ii am not gong to upgrade this to Buster due to issues with Chromium. However I did some work on the project I want to use for the Robot event on the 30th (more details on that via the library.
The attendees at Code Club have really come on leaps and bounds since starting,
Confidence and sense of achievement have been proven to be key to improving self worth, self esteem and ultimately mental health. We still have a 50/50 gender mix which is great too.
The small group size means we can give more 1-2-1 attention to learners.
Next Code Club is 3rd August where I am sure more progress will be made. New members welcome.
