Code and Robotics club term 3 is off to a flying start! We are currently in week two and are forging ahead with a variety of projects. This week the Code Club Team worked their way through a series of lightbot challenges. The new Robot Crew focused on building a love-o-meter (a temperature sensitive light meter) while the veterans of the club continued their robot build.
It’s here! Moonhack is finally here! It’s time for Australia to come together and set a record to #getkidscoding. There are two projects to choose from: Scratch and Python.
On Wednesday July 20 (tonight!), beginning at 12:01AM you will be able to submit your project to a form to be counted toward the world record. You will have 24 hours to submit your entry, and you should only enter one project.
You don’t *have* to follow the rules! This project is a guideline: something to help you get started. If you feel like doing your own thing, we’re happy to see your personality shine. Just do us a favour though, and follow the Scratch Community Guidelines.
When you are ready, you can submit a link with your project below!
And if you don’t “finish” the project, that’s OK! This is the beginning of your code journey and we’re excited to see what you have learned during Moonhack.

Where has the time gone? Where did term two go? It flew right past us all but we still managed to achieve so much in both Code Club and Robots/Arduino Club! Code club had us all working through some scratch, hour of code, code combat as well as playing lightbot on our new interactive television. In Robotics Club the newbies earned their Arduino licences while the long timers moved on to building their own robots from the ground up. Both terms ended with some fun while we made our own stop motion movies (available to watch and download here: www.coderedlands.org.au/videos)
Can’t wait for next term!
Welcome to Code Redlands
Code Redlands is a coding and robotics program dedicated to creating a an environment where we can explore, learn and create. With Digital Literacy a new focus for the future we want to augment digital literacy skills by offering space, technology, and facilitators. We hope to equip the next generations of Queenslanders with STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) skills to find their own place in an increasingly digital world.
