Hope you’re all recovered from the Easter Break and looking forward to coming to Code Club and learning something new! This week we’ll be finishing off the 2-part session: Using Blender to build 3D models. Gary held a great session last week and will be continuing with explaining how Blender can be used to build models for our 3D printer. Our 3D group meet every week though, so if you’ve missed any of his sessions, please come and look him up and he’s sure to give a hand. If you have any models that you would like printed, please let us know and we’ll sort this out for you.

This Saturday we’re also holding a session introducing Roblox. Roblox is a Massively Multiplayer Online Game aimed at 8-18 years olds where players can create their own virtual world, socialise and play together. Games can be scripted using a language called Lua, which is increasing in popularity in this space. This Saturday will just be an introduction, but we’re intending to create a Special Interest Group that meet every Saturday to build things together.

In the meantime, our Makerspace is working on a Meet and Greet Robot which is currently living on the Makerspace Whiteboard and in the minds of the people envisioning it. If you want to get involved in designing, building or coding for this, please speak to Steve on Saturday. We’re also involved with MICTA over practice and TT week who are turning The Forum into a space to Talk Tech and enjoy racing and TT related topics. If you want to get involved, speak to Kurt on Saturday.

Just a reminder that next week we’ll be kicking off a new set of courses for beginners. We’ll be doing HTML and CSS for kids and also starting a repeat of our massively popular Scratch course. Drop me an email at owen@codeclub.im if you want to join either of them.

Lots going on and lots more I didn’t have space for, but if you want to come and meet other technology enthusiasts, drop in on Saturday; our doors are always open!
