Jersey Coders breaks up for Easter after Wednesday 29th March. We will resume the club on Wed 26th April when we will be starting some new groups and restructuring the club. Unfortunately we are suffering from a lack of experienced mentors at present and so we are looking at how we have organised the groups within the club.
March 8th. Jersey Coders will move to the St Helier library for one evening only, to take a tour around the Barclays Eagle Lab. We will be looking at the great equipment that is available for hire there: 3D printers, laser cutter, and vinyl cutter, plus the Maker Space.
Meet 6.30pm at the Jersey Library. Pick up at 8pm.
The following week we are back at the Hub as usual, until Easter holidays (last session March 29th)
After a blazing hot summer Jersey kids are ready for some serious techie fun. Every Wednesday, during term, at 6.30 in the Digital Jersey Hub a horde of tech obsessed boys and girls gather for 1.5hr of computer madness. They program, they configure, they install, they get ready to take over the world. Do you want to be part of the cutting edge, are you the parent of a teen and want them to be the next IT magnete? Then come along on Wednesday 14th September at 6.30 to see what we are all about. Or email us (or get your parents to email us) and let us know. We’d be happy to welcome you!
We have had a wonderful winter season at Jersey’s only teen tech club and today was an opportunity for the kids to show off what they have done.
The Java games group have been developing games.
Watch this video of Kuba demonstrating his Pacman game.
Watch this video of fellow coders trying to answer questions in Sam’s Star Wars quiz.
Joseph has been working on his own game called Tower Defence games, watch him explain what its all about.
The electronics group, AKA the TimeLords, have been developing a clock that gets the latest time from orbiting satellites.
Watch the TimeLords fabulous presentation and see the most accurate clock in Jersey.
We were so excited that BBC TV Channel Island did a live broadcast from the Jersey Coders Club on Wednesday 23rd September 2015. They were with us to celebrate National Coding week.
A great evening was had by all who attended the Jersey Coders show and tell. This evening gave each of the three main coding groups (Games, Robotics and Web) the opportunity to demonstrate the efforts of their hard working over the last few months. Each group gave a short presentation of their work followed by a hands on demonstration. Everyone who attended had the change to see what the other groups had achieved. The games group demonstrated their moon lander game while the robotics group showed how they had made a temperature sensor from a lily pad.
If you missed their presentations why not have a look at their presentation online.
