Re: Python after the two Code Club Python modules

We user trinket for python and can't install anything on the machines we use (they are public access library computers the rest of the time) so we are rather limited there. We might be getting some raspberry pis but we've been waiting six months or so already, so I don't want to count on that. We've...

Re: Python after the two Code Club Python modules

Thanks for the suggestions - all good starting points (and I've got all nostalgic about those Usborne programming books which got me into programming myself as a kid!). I think ultimately I need to do more prep for the Code Club sessions - I've been a bit spoiled by the modules provided. We don't ha...

Python after the two Code Club Python modules

I've looked at the other Python projects on the Raspberry Pi but can't really see many suitable (I kno...

Re: What is your top tip for running a Code Club?

We're only a year or so in with our Code Club, but the thing that has made a massive difference was not trying to have all the kids do the same project each week, but just letting them go at their own pace. We don't seem to have had any problems with the kids going off and playing computer games sin...

Re: Saving microbit projects

Thanks everybody! It sounds like I need to have a chat to whoever runs the network, computers etc the library (not sure who that is but that's obviously my problem to find out!) and sounds like it's worth a quick check whether memory sticks work on them - they're Chromebooks which I think only the C...

Saving microbit projects

Question for anybody else doing microbit projects - how do you get the kids to save their work for future sessions? Saving files doesn't really work because our machines are set up with a guest logins that wipe all the files between use, and I imagine in a lot of Code Clubs the children don't use th...
