Next week is National Coding Week, and we thought to celebrate this, we would release a series of blogs dedicated to a project theme. This time we have chosen ‘games’. Each day there will be a new blog post detailing how to create a simple game-related project. Then at the end of the week, each one of these projects will connect together to form a game, which we will go into more detail on Friday.
As it stands, here is our current plan of action: Monday – colour picker using a Sparkle; Tuesday – dice using a Matrix display; Wednesday – letter spinner; Thursday – audible countdown; and Friday – Playing the game!
Each individual blog (apart from Friday) aims to provide you with a small project that you can do discretely, and then if you complete each one, you will be able to combine the smaller projects into a form of game.
Like other initiatives, National Coding Week is designed to encourage people of all ages to try something new, around the theme of coding/programming. There is a massive emphasis that not just schools get involved, but individuals and businesses too! You can find out more on their website.
