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 around. This week we’ll be looking at collision detection and other objects around the play area. It’s a good way to get introduced to C# and learn what Unity has on offer. We still have a couple of spots open for this session, but you’ll need to bring a laptop with unity installed if you want to take part. If this is of interest, please sign up for the session at our CoderDojo page.

Last week we mentioned that we’ll be looking to set up a WordPress User Group at STEAM Lab. Well, our plans are taking shape and we’ll be meeting on the first Monday of every month. This will be a monthly meetup for developers, designers, enthusiasts and users of WordPress. If you’d like to join us please sign up for the Meetup.

We’re also looking for new ideas and volunteers for Code Club. If you’re interested in technology, want to share what you know with others and can spare some time, why don’t you get in touch to see if you can help. We have equipment to teach coding, 3D printing, virtual reality, electronics and a host of associated disciplines. Alternatively you can also help by purchasing something off our Wishlist.

See you Saturday!
