With April / Easter holidays making it impractical to host a CoderDojo, we’ve been busy planning for May, June and July!
So – our theme for Manchester CoderDojo is I/O – inputs and outputs!
We want to build a #McrCoderDojo Rube Goldberg Machine over the next months – one that involves physical items, but also virtual worlds. Connecting Minecraft, Scratch, RaspberryPi PureData with python, Makey Makey, IFTTT, marbles, robots, hama beads, dominoes and whatever else we can get our hands on!
Interested? Got ideas? It’ll require lots of hacking and talking – but will be huge fun. Watch out for tickets for CoderDojo #13 in next week’s newsletter…
