With CoderDojo, young people can make their most exciting ideas a reality, whether it is to build a website, a digital game, or even build a…
June 2, 2015 It’s another busy morning at DD in the WebWorkHouse. The place is buzzing with talk of Minecraft servers, Coderdojo Coolest Projects, SketchUp and Tinkercad. Parents watch from the sidelines and lend a hand if needed. When not, there’s always lots of delicious coffee to keep them…
DesignerDojo now has it’s own Channel dedicated to the awesome work done by our Ninja Wizards*!!! Here it is…
*Much debate was had about this term…. There is a long ancient tradition of Ninja Wizards going way back. We just can’t find any references to it… Anywhere.
It’s 10 o’clock on Sunday morning & designer ninjas descend on Webworkhouse eager to log on & enter their 3D worlds.
The Webworkhouse is a really unusual and interesting space: It’s heated solely from the energy generated by 100 desktop computers, two drinks fridges & our Mojo 3D printer! It’s always really cozy here. But today it’s even warmer than usual because the new ice cream cone machine is rigged up for the Summer season-YES! Might need one of those cones later to keep the ninjas cool!
But first it’s time to catch-up on ninja news & share some updates. Fearless leader Paul shares essential ninja tools, today it’s MC Edit, Sketch-up and our old pal Minecraft. Paul provides enough info to spark some imaginative thinking & away we go! Sometimes the ninjas have a clear plan but more often than not things just develop along the way & since it’s all virtual anyway, well virtually anything can happen!
Ninjas know that problem solving together & sharing ideas is a great way to develop ninja superpowers!
Speaking of superpowers; we are learning how to transfer files and upload our 3D designs to Minecraft and we used redstone to create flashing lights in Minecraft!
Check out our latest videos above & see what you think!
Here are some very good tips for how to interact with Ninjas… From CoderDojo Milano.
