At 16:00 we’re continuing Javascript 2 with an introduction to the HTML5 canvas element and how we can use Javascript to create graphical displays. At 17:00, the Scratch class will continue with an old favourite: Ghostbusters, which uses Scratch […]

More Javascript, Scratch and Roblox

This Saturday we’re continuing our Javascript class at 4:00pm. We have started using jQuery now and it’s really pushed our Javascript work up a notch. We’re expecting the next few sessions to be fun. We’ve started a new Scratch class too and this week the 5:00pm Scratch class will be following the Lost in Space […]

No classes over Easter Weekend

We just finished our Javascript for Beginners classes last weekend, so will be pausing our lessons over the Easter weekend, particularly as a number of people are away for the long weekend. We’ll be starting new courses the week after that, with Javscript II (a continuation of Javascript for Beginners) and a new Scratch class […]

Code, Robotics and much more

This Saturday we’ll be continuing with our Javascript class at 4:00pm, introducing program structures like loops and conditions. We’ve had a really deep dive into variables, objects and data types so far, so now we’ll be accelerating our learning with seeing how they can all be used to create programs and algorithms. This will be […]

More Javascript, Twine and Robotics

This Saturday we’ll be continuing our Javascript class at 4:00pm. We took a deep dive into variables last week, covering string, numeric and boolean variables and learning all sorts of things we could do with them, particularly as Javascript is loosly typed. This week we’ll be focusing on arrays, and building programs to take advantage […]

New Javascript class and Twine for Girls

This Saturday we’re starting a brand new class: Beginning Javascript at our usual starting time of 16:00. It’s a new class which we’re running for the first time as we’re looking forward to seeing how it is received. This will be followed by the Advanced Roblox Scripting class. We’re also running a Twine for Girls […]

Space Junk, lots of Tech and a brand new Javascript class

This Saturday we’ll holding our final Scratch class of this season at 4:00pm, one called Space Junk, which I believe might be the first time we’re doing this project. It’s a good one to end the course with, as it brings together a number of concepts learnt in a fun way and means everyone has […]

Clone Wars, Roblox, WordPress, Alexa and much more

This Saturday at 16:00 we’ll be running our penultimate Scratch session of this term, a session called Clone Wars where the class will be creating a shoot-em-up using all the things they have learnt in Scratch so far. As with all our sessions, it’s great fun with lots to learn. At 17:00 we’ll be continuing […]

Catch the Dots, Roblox, Alexa Skills and much more

This Saturday, we’re running a Scratch project at 4:00pm called Catch the Dots. We’ve done this a number of times before and it’s always great to see the class put together a game that they and their friends can play. It’s a fantastic example of what can be built by beginners learning to program and […]
