Micro:bit deck the halls
'Tis the season to be jolly! It’s that time of year again, so let’s introduce some festive music into your Micro:bit coding! Code along to create the melody of the classic Christmas carol, ‘Deck the halls’. To help guide you through, click to view the simple to follow workbook. For this project you’ll need to access Micro:bit.org, then select ‘New Project’.
Dodge the snowballs and get a chance to throw one back. In this session we explore how using clones in Scratch can make your projects more powerful. Use the starter guide to code along with the video. Or, if you would like more of a challenge, try the full project to create the full game. Click to watch the video, and for this project you will also need to access scratch.mit.edu
Draw a snowflake
When you think of the cold and snowy winter, you probably don’t think of turtles, right? Well that’s about to change! For our winter Python coding project, we’ll show you how to move a very festive turtle around the screen, using ‘loops’ and ‘definitions’ to draw a snowflake design. For this project you’ll need to access EduBlocks.org, then select ‘Editor’ and choose ‘Python 3’ as your coding language.
