U Can Too Event Blog
We had a great time at the computing events which we hosted for Code Week UK in October 2015, did you?
Comment below, to let us know what you enjoyed most about
Both day 1 and day 2 were great successes, with lots learnt by all who participated. We were very lucky to have several individuals who sacrificed their time to help make the 2 day computing event the great experience that it was.
For day 1 we hosted a huge Curriculum Day which saw the pupils of out school, cycle through a carousel of activities. Colin from The Creative Workshop created and delivered a wonderfully informative workshop all about pixels, Hugh Adams delivered a very amusing and informative workshop on website creation using Mozilla Tools, whereby the children ’hacked’ the school website. Ian Allgar from 2Simple came along to show Year 3 how to use Purple Mash’s 2DIY 3D to make awesome Mazes, whilst David & Francesca from Zu3D ran a session using Zu3D animation software. Homewood school supported us by loaning a variety of equipment. Mrs Adams also ran a Soni Pi workshop during which Year 6 pupils used Raspberry Pi mini computers to created their own musical compositions.
It is also relevant to add that David who owns ZuLogic and developed Zu3D attended Staplehurst School as a child. This is real evidence that the children could create, share and succeed. Anyone still wishing to purchase Zu3D at the discounted price, should either call or email ZuLogic.
On Day 2 many of our guest mentors, returned to share their knowledge once again, but this time children attended with their parents. giving them an opportunity to share their favourite activities and creations from day 1. We also welcomed Thomas from CoderDojo London on the Saturday event, who introduced children to Python and brought out the Sphero’s for some remote controlled fun.
