Our third Turing House Dojo took place on Saturday June 9th, and with our small army of enthusiastic mentors, two brand new activities, and perfectly tuned air-conditioning, we were well equipped to compete with the glorious summer sunshine outside.
We introduced robotics, using some of the Lego Mindstorms kit and exciting projects that Turing House recently used in the national finals of the EEP Robotics Challenge. Special thanks go to the school’s facilities manager, Mr Jones, for clearing out a store room, to give our robots lots of space to play!
Our regular Scratch activity was as popular as ever with our younger Dojo participants, our website developers got creative with their fictional zoo activity, and last, but certainly not least, our Python coders got stuck into a whole raft of fun projects, from beginner to intermediate level.
Thank-you to everyone who helped to make the event successful, including Artis from Joskos (whose technical support included popping out for new microphone batteries) and, of course, the wonderful Turing House Friends who kept everyone supplied with beverages and biccies.
The next Turing House Dojo is Saturday October 7th. Find out more here.
