A colourful start to the Summer…


Dojo6MontageOn Saturday May 12th, we hosted our 6th CoderDojo at Turing House School with more than 50 young people taking part.  The robotic claws were back in action, and several more zoo websites were built. Scratch was used to create ghost hunting games, boat races, dodgeball and more.  Our Python coders were making top trumps, encrypting secret messages and racing turtles!

New to the Dojo this time was Scratch Spirograph, a colourful activity run by Philip, a local puzzle book author and computing tutor.  He was showing our budding digital designers how, with just a little bit of maths, they can make gorgeous geometrical patterns.

We are very grateful to all the people who make our CoderDojo events possible.  A big shout out goes to Adrien, the Turing House caretaker, and Mohammed, our Joskos support engineer, who dealt with every minor glitch in true super-hero fashion.  Special thanks also goes to Jen, our friendly face on the door, and guardian of biscuits and drinks!

We are already looking forward to our next Dojo in the Autumn term. To find out how you can get involved, visit the Turing House CoderDojo website.
