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, […]

Building robots, Memory games and more news

This Saturday we’re continuing our series of HTML/CSS and Scratch classes. At 4:00pm we’ll be running our HTML/CSS class with a fun ‘Create a Robot’ project. This will be followed by a Scratch class at 5:00pm where the class will be building a memory game. We’re more than half way through on our classes and […]

Dodgeball, Linux, Robotics and more

We have another great Saturday planned at Code Club this week, with the Scratch class at 4:00pm doing a session called Dodgeball. It’s not quite Donkey Kong, but there are lots of similarities in gameplay and a great game to build and play. This will be followed by the Linux class at 5:00pm. If you […]

Clone Wars, HTML and Lego Mindstorms

We have a packed schedule this Saturday at Code Club, with our next HTML session (loads of CSS in this one), a Scratch session called Clone Wars (for all the shoot-em-up fans out there) and as much Lego Mindstorms as you can handle! As usual, our HTML session will be at 4:00pm followed by the […]

Ghostbusters and Robotics

This Saturday we’re be running a Scratch session titled Ghostbusters, which is the first time our Scratch class will be looking at the mechanics of creating a game. Should be great fun and if you haven’t done this session yet please come and join us at 5:00pm. Scratch does make it easy to give life […]

Clone Wars and a gaming opportunity …

This Saturday we’re back at Code Club with a great Scratch session called Clone Wars, where we build a shoot-em up with cloned alien invaders trying to get through our defences. We’ve found Scratch a great platform to teach with, and this particular project is a great way of showing how an object can have […]

Gotta catch ’em all!

This Saturday we’ll be running a Scratch session called ‘Catch The Dots’ which involves creating a game to do just that. It’s a fun project and the next session of our Scratch series, which is fast drawing to a close. We’ll be starting a new one right after that though, but we already have a […]

Lessons for the next few weeks

I hope you’ve all had a great Easter and are ready for Code Club to resume. We’re continuing our Scratch series this Saturday with a project called Brain Game which will test the skills and ability of those around you. We’re also running a Java catchup class for those who need to catch up on […]

First Code Club Session of 2016

First of all I want to wish you all a Happy New Year from all of us at Code Club. We hope the year brings you all you desire, gives you opportunity to get better at coding or, if you’ve never tried it, becomes the year you delve into this exciting new experience. Code Club […]

Getting back into gear

This Saturday should mark another successful end to the TT, but instead of basking in the post-TT glow, we’re going to jump right back into our Code Club schedule, and continue our HTML/CSS and Scratch classes. The Scratch class will be working on creating a Boat Race and in the HTML/CSS we’ll be learning about […]
