Coder Dojo Update 6/12/2013

The coders worked on adding key press events to their scratch projects. Students learned how to make their characters (sprites) move in various directions.

They learned to move their sprites left and right as well as up and down. They learned that moving their sprite is based on x and y coordinates. Next week students will receive their coder dojo teeshirts.

Coder Dojo 5/29/2013 Update

Tonight the young programmers took turns giving presentations. The first presentation was on how to install and use an anti-griefing plugin to your minecraft server to roll back damage done to your creations by other players. One other presentation given by a 7 year old member was regarding how to create and upload a custom made minecraft skin (look and feel for your minecraft character). Lastly students were shown how to input questions and output answers to and from characters in scratch. Next week the students will go through a lesson with more indepth animation.
