Week 3 code club was an introduction to App Lab on code.org. Participants could work their way through a self-paced activity designed for learning how to code an app. The participants had a lot of fun and it made them start thinking about if they could design an app, what it would do and what it would look like. Once they had worked their way through the activity, they could then move on to start making their own app.
In robotics week 3, participants started learning how to code their robot to turn. It was their task this lesson to code their robot to move from one line marked on the floor to another line, turn around and drive back. It started off as a challenge, but as the participants started working with their robot more and testing their code constantly, the challenge turned very easy. Once everyone had mastered the first challenge, it was then the task to drive from one line to another and drive around an object without touching it. This proved to be another challenge, but again, it was conquered in no time at all. Another great week of coding and robotics done! Well done to everyone.
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.
