Coding & programming club at DHS

Continuing with the theme of last week’s Computer Science Education Week, students have taken things one step further. The ICT department have created a Raspberry Pi and Engineering club where students can learn how to code, program, create games and control objects. Students range from Year 8-11 and have produced some great programs and codes this week. Below are some pictures of students using the Pi’s, if you want to come along please ask your teacher during your ICT lesson.

We (Emily & Katisha) did 74 lines of code today!!
This week is Computer Science Education Week around the world and Year 8 students at Durrington High School have been taking part in this in their ICT lessons.
What is coding you ask? Coding is what lets us create computer software, apps and websites. In lessons Year 8 have been learning how to code by using a game software called The Maze and you have to try and get an angry bird to the pig by using code. Some of us also used a game called LightBot and you have to try and get the robot to the blue square. Others used Javascript, Scratch, CodeAcademy, Code HS and CodeCOmbat to name a few. We really enjoyed trying out new pieces of software and doing something a bit different in lessons.
Year 8 have been using a website called http://csedweek.org/learn and you can have a look and learn too! Anyone from 6-106 can take part. We hope you have a go and enjoy it like we did.
