Python functions, Arduino projects and neural networks

This Saturday we’re continuing with our Python class at 3:00pm. We had a great time creating a Magic 8 Ball program last week, and this week we’ll be learning all about Python functions and creating a Guess My Number game. We’ll be following this with further Arduino classes at 4:00pm building some great electronic devices. […]

Python Magic 8-ball, Arduino classes and much more

We’re continuing with our Python series at Code Club this week, putting together a Magic 8-Ball program and using it to learn how Python works and how to build more complex programs. The class has started on a high note and we intend to continue in this vein. We’re also continuing our Arduino classes on […]

Python and Arduino Classes at the Douglas Makerspace

This week, we start a brand new Python class at the Douglas Makerspace, running between 3:00pm and 4:00pm. We’ve had a massive response to this new class and will be running 2 classes simultaneously to accommodate as many people who signed up as we can. For those in the class, if you can bring a laptop […]

New classes at our Douglas Makerspace

It’s great to see our members sign up on Coderdojo and enrol for our new classes. They’re filling almost as fast as we can put them up, which means we’re making an effort to open up more new and exciting classes. We now have Arduino classes, Soldering classes, and coding in Python, .Net and Java. […]

Join Our Dojo, Twilight AI Session and new classes in the pipeline

First of all, an important announcement and request. We’re changing the way we operate here at Code Club and have decided to work with CoderDojo, an organisation that shares our ideals that Coding creates opportunities for young and old. CoderDojo will help us organise ourselves better and provides a platform for us to advertise our […]

New Arduino class, Computer Vision and CoderDojo

The two Arduino courses we’re running this month are progressing nicely. It’s great to see our Arduino kits being used to their fullest and it’s awesome to see our new Makerspace buzzing with activity. Our Saturday sessions in April have been booked up, but we’ve opened a new class running on Wednesday evenings and we […]

Arduino classes continue, and another Wednesday twilight session

Our Arduino classes are continuing this week on Wednesday and Saturday. We’ve managed to fill up 3 classes so far, and are getting ready to announce the next one. And things are getting more exciting in that space too. We’ve been playing with Zumo, a little Arduino controlled bot that has some fantastic capabilities and […]

Arduino Courses and Security Themed Twilight Code Club

Last Saturday we had our first session at the Douglas Makerspace, running a Beginner Arduino course with a batch of eager new students. It was a great session, putting our Arduino kits through their paces; with lots of flickering LEDs all around the room, and pages of code on everyone’s machine. The class will be […]

Starting a new format in Douglas – new Arduino courses!

Yesterday we moved our Code Club kit from Barrule House in Ballasalla to our new headquarters in Douglas, and we’re right in the centre, a couple of doors down from Java Express and just on top of Miquando. This will be a start of a new era for us and an opportunity to deliver more […]

Last session at Barrule House – Clone Wars and Pixel Art

March is coming to an end, and with this so will our stay at Barrule House in Ballasalla. It has been a great location for delivering classes and growing our community, but it’s time for us to look at other ways of delivering our classes and sessions. We’re running an Arduino class in Douglas next, […]
