Come and learn to program an Arduino

This Saturday we’re making our Arduino kits available in an Open Session. It’s a chance to come and learn what makes an Arduino tick, how to program one and how to use them to control devices and projects. We have a number of kits that come fully loaded with a number of components including LEDs, […]

A bit more Unity

Last Saturday we started off a Unity tutorial in our Code Club session, an introductory tutorial called 2d UFO. We made some great progress, and will be continuing with the tutorial this Saturday between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. We’ve been learning about importing assets into Unity, setting up GameObjects and figuring out how to move them […]

Finishing off Python and looking at Unity

This Saturday at 3:00pm we have our final class of the Intermediate Python class. We’ve been using the Python Next Steps book provide structure to this class and it’s been a great journey of discovery, from using Python online to building desktop applications.  We built a fully-functioning calculator last week and this week we’ll be enhancing […]

Resuming Python and more Raspberry Pi

This Saturday we’ll be resuming out Python series at 3:00pm. We’ve had a little break due to holidays, but it’s time to pick up where we left off and continue our Intermediate Python class. We started working on a GUI based calculator last time and we’ll be continuing using this to learn new concepts, understand how […]

Some more Raspberry Pi

This Saturday we’re planning to have the next session of our Raspberry Pi series between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. This little computer has created a new way for kids to be introduced to computing (well, some would argue it was an old, but forgotten way) and we’re delighted to be be able to help a new […]

A helping of Java and Pi

We’re continuing with our Raspberry Pi exploration sessions this Saturday between 4:00pm and 6:00pm, and we’re opened up a few more places for this session. We have 6 Raspberry Pi stations for people to use, but as we had some no-shows last week, we’ve decided to open a few more places on the basis that […]

Raspberry Pi Masterclass

This Saturday we’re starting something new at Code Club. We’re starting a special Raspberry Pi Masterclass for those interested in learning more about this little device. It’s a series of 4 sessions that starts with the basics of Linux and the Raspberry Pi and works through to building Artificial Intelligence capabilities on this palm-sized computer. […]

Last Roblox and some Java

This Saturday we’re finishing off our 4-session Roblox extravaganza. It’s been great to watch everyone create new worlds, as well as explore others created by fellow Roblox users. We’ve had a huge demand for these sessions and it was great to see that we could do it thanks to parents volunteering their time. We’ll be […]

More Python, Roblox and Soldering

Our classes are still in full swing, with our Intermediate Python class at 3:00pm this Saturday and Roblox Explorer session between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. The .Net group won’t be meeting this week and the Java class is missing this session too, but there are lots of other projects that we’ll be working on. If you’re […]

Soldering classes, tech meetups and lots more

As June rolls on, our schedule keeps filling up with lots of new and exciting sessions down at our STEAM Lab Makerspace in Douglas. Our classes keep filling up as quickly as we can put them on, and and we understand this can be disappointing if you’re trying to find a space, but please don’t […]
