Whilst preparing for CoderDojo 12, we’ve had some fun trying to see how things stick together. Often, we have different tables for Minecraft, Python, Raspberry Pi, Scratch and other stuff. Of course, things crossover, but we’re hoping to start to see more – like the idea of turning a real world light on and off from Minecraft…
Elsewhere, it was a busy week for various Manchester CoderDojo’ers. The Raspberry Jamboree in Manchester helped celebrate the 2nd birthday of the Raspberry Pi. Thanks to Lisa for the party games! Amy won an award, whilst Edward and Nour blogged on the Make Things Do Stuff site.
Next week is a special #HourofCode across the country – take a look at their site for activities.
