Open Arduino Session

This Saturday we have another Code Club Open Session like we had last week, with a focus on our Arduino kits. This is an opportunity to come and explore what can be done with an Arduino, learn some electronics and try your hand at making something cool! The Arduino kits we have come with some […]

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, […]

More Python and Arduino

This Saturday we’ll be finished off the Beginner’s Python class and opening up for more Arduino fun in our other classes. There’s lots to do at Code Club at the moment, with Artificial Intellignce demonstrators, 3D printing, radio, soldering and lots of other fun stuff, but we’re expecting this Saturday to be a quiet one. […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Sunrise, Brain Game and some exciting news

This Saturday we’ll be continuing our classes at Code Club. At 4pm, our HTML/CSS class will be working on a lesson called Sunrise, which is the next in the series of Code Club sessions. This will be followed at 5:00pm by the next session in our Scratch classes. We’ll be running a session called Brain […]

An Introduction to Arduino

This Saturday we’re taking some time to look at the fantastic hardware platform that is Arduino. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects and lends itself to a whole bunch of applications, from robot control, to wearable projects and all sorts of other weird […]
