Code Club this week was very interesting… Last week we started coding a scratch game and this week participants decided that they worked so hard last week that they wanted a week of fun and we continued on with Code Combat. Code Combat is an excellent resource for learning python coding in a fun environment.
Everyone had a great time and they look forward to what the last few weeks of Code Club brings.
This week in robotics it was all about learning how to attach an Ultrasonic Sensor. An ultrasonic sensor allows a robot to “see” in front of them. This allows the robot to react to obstacles in front of them or to code that has been programmed for robot to do. In a sumobot competition, the ultrasonic sensor will allow the robot to either pursue an enemy or to flee from an enemy.
It will be very exciting to see what participants choose to do with their robot for the competition.
Welcome to Code Redlands
Code Redlands is a STEAM 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.
Redland Libraries offer School Holiday Activities throughout the year for children aged 8 and above.
