Tech Club

Join us for the launch of Prendiville’s New Technology Club! The club plans to run an event once a term with the aim of fostering student learning and awareness of technology and its applications in today's world. We are kicking off the club in week 9 with daily fun technology events and activities.

We encourage students to get involved! There will be loads of prizes in store all week for students that participate.

Flex your coding muscles with Monday's Coding Quiz! It will be released in the school notices for you to try your hand at.

Join us as KT5 at lunchtime if you want some help. 

 

Here are our year specific activities: 

Year 7:

Use your imagination and creative skills to create a game using Scratch.

 

Year 8:

Use your imagination and creative skills, create a Minecraft game using ‘PlayLab’ in Code.org

 

Year 9/ Year 10: 

Using Python programming language:

Make a two-player Rock-Paper-Scissors game. (Hint: Ask for player plays (using input), compare them, print out a message of congratulations to the winner, and ask if the players want to start a new game)

Remember the rules:

  • Rock beats scissors
  • Scissors beats paper
  • Paper beats rock

 

Year 11/12

Using Python programming language:

You have devised a new twist on the traditional 'What number am I thinking of?' game to help your cousins learn their 7 times tables! Write a game that asks the user to guess the number you are thinking of (For this game, the number will always be 42).

The user is allowed 10 guesses. They make a 'Mistake!' if they guess a number that isn't a multiple of 7. A user can make a maximum of one mistake, otherwise they lose the game. When the game is over, you should always print out ‘That was fun.’

 

ALL ENTRIES DUE BY WEDNESDAY. Share you CODING in OneDrive with Ms Hyde, Mrs Beech and Mrs Sady. If you encounter any issues, please DIREQT message the teacher.

Lose yourself in virtual reality with our VR headset display, on Tuesday at lunch in Gateway!

Come and join us in KT5 and build your own fruit keyboard out of the Micro:bit. Bring your headphones and your fruit and have a go at building your own. (Note – we will have some Playdough available so you can eat your fruit, but build the keyboard anyway)!

Don’t want to build a keyboard? Try creating a love meter, or maybe a game of rock paper scissors – your friends won’t be able to cheat with this one!
