Activities for Big Birthday Weekend Jam:


Traffic Light Coding – Learn to code in Python and control traffic lights on the Raspberry Pi. Quite a challenging workshop and people may need to buddy up with others as we only have a limited amount of traffic lights.

Coding For Beginners – Learn the basics of coding and code in Scratch, a child friendly programming language. This workshop is great for beginners and people who are unsure on what coding is.

Make your own Cookie Clicker game in Scratch – Learn how to make your own “cookie clicker” style incremental game in Scratch 3.0. Cookie clicker games involve pressing something repeatedly and then buying upgrades to increase your clicking power. They all have no ending. We’ll have various scratch based examples ready for you to look at and learn from as well as code snippets and explanations at the start of the workshop.


One More Workshop To Be Confirmed


Luke, from York Pi Jam, will be talking about the benefits of learning Scratch. This talk is perfect for parents/guardians who want to know why we should be encouraging children to learn to code. This talk is ticketed but it is free. When you sign in at the venue on the day ask for a talk ticket.
