Happy Birthday!

In Code club we have been learning about writing code using html. One project we have been doing is remixing the html code to make our own customised interactive card. I made one for my mums birthday. Here it is, hope you like it 🙂

Code Club Competition

Code clubbers,

Please read below details of a new competition that you might like to enter. You will have to be quick though as the deadline is Friday 23rd March…

Dear Mr Edmondson,

We’d love your club to take part in our latest competition exclusively for active Code Clubs.

The challenge is to code a digital collage about your favourite things, and the deadline is Friday 23 March.

Getting started is easy! Participants should choose one of two Code Club projects, Tech Toys or Stickers, as a starting point. Then they can get creative coding a project about their interests, likes, and hobbies.

Here are three top tips to help you on your way:

  1. We’re looking for fun, original remixes, not super-complex programs, so you can spend as little as one or two sessions on your entry.
  2. Make a note of the deadline and plan time for your club to work on their projects. All entries must be in by 12 noon on Friday 23 March, and late entries will not be accepted.
  3. Your club members can create as many entries as they like, and they are welcome to work individually or in small teams. However, you can only submit one entry per club, so think about how to choose that project.

For more ideas, info, and details on how to submit your entry, head over to https://www.codeclub.org.uk/competitions.

We hope you’ll enjoy the competition! If you have have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at support@codeclub.org.uk.

Happy coding! 

Sarah
