Many thanks to all those who made to to #McrCoderDojo 13 last week. We wanted to build the World’s Largest CoderDojo Rube Goldberg Machine (in Manchester, on a Sunday).
Catch up on progress:
- Video of Big Trak to SMS to dominoes… across the campus area of The Sharp Project…
- Write up by DJ on connecting Scratch, Python and Google Apps – with a eureka moment late on! There’s also a screencast.
- Thanks to Jo for the blog and video on the bubble machine project. Looking forward to it connecting with Minecraft next month…
We’ll get more content together on the wiki (any volunteers?) so you can try more out at home – but please feedback any ideas as you try them
Please note: The first wave of tickets for Manchester CoderDojo #14 (June 8th) will be out next Saturday 24th May at 9am, via this newsletter
