Today we are going to learn a new way of programming – Python. It can seem quite tricky at first, but if you stick with it you will get the hang of it. We’re going to start by doing some ASCII art. Make sure you read the instructions very carefully and ask me if you need any help.
We had a great time in `Code Club yesterday using Sonic Pi for the first time. Sonic Pi is a brilliant app which lets you create your own music through coding. You can either create your own code or adapt code already written. It’s great fun and teaches you some of the basic rules of coding whilst you make your music. Some people even use Sonic Pi to perform live music. Have a look at the videos below to find out more.
Our first activity will be to complete a computational thinking challenge. To access it you will need to click on the link at the bottom of your post. You will then need to login to your account with the details I will give you.
Once the challenge has been completed, half of you will be selected to take part in code club this year and the other half will take part next year. If you’re not selected, don’t worry there will be plenty of other opportunities to take part in extra curricular computing activities.
