It is our final week of code club for the term on Tuesday, December 2nd. Parents are welcome to come by for show and tell to see what all of our students have been up to. Parents are also invited to complete our survey, which will help us continue to improve the code clubs in the future. We have had a great time teaching and learning along with all of our participants. We will be learning about Arduinos and robotics starting February 3rd, so make sure to sign up if you are interested in continuing with us.
How time flies when you are having fun. Last week students played a game, learning to hide ninjas by repositioning them on a webpage using CSS. It was a challenge, but lots of fun. And there was chocolate for everyone at the end of it all. If you wanted to have a go at it yourself, the lesson and the code are available here under week 6.
Hiding the ninjas marks the end of the formal learning scheduled for this term. The last 2 sessions will see our participants creating their own websites from the ground up. We are excited to see what they come up with! All of the parents are invited to come 15 minutes before the end of the final session (December 2) for a bit of show and tell. We will also make sure to post the sites online so that students will be able to show their work off to the world.
Week 4 was all about getting started making webpages creative and pretty using CSS. The students continued using the webpages we had created last week about our imaginary lost cat named Felix. They made changes to the colour and sizes of the fonts, the position of everything on the page, and the size of headings giving the pages a unique style.
At the end of the class, we tried uploading the websites to the internet. We got a few up during class, but had some connection problems. Not to worry, the rest are up for the world to see. You can check out all of the webpages in the Students section of the website.
Next week, we are continuing with CSS, so stay tuned.
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.
