Printcraft at Llandough Primary

Today, Technocamps spend the day at Llandough primary school helping with the’re World War 2 Code breaking project.
We had great fun using Minecraft to build Anderson shelters and other WW2 era objects.
After which we fired up the 3D printer and printed out their models. This was great fun thanks to the printcraft server which we networked up so that all of the pupils were logged into the same server and worked together to complete there project.

At the end they had a model which they can see and touch that will take prime position on there display.

Technocamp for Year 8 Pupils

Many thanks to Rob Lutken and Richard Ward from The University of South Wales for coming into school today to run the Technoclub workshops for our Year 8 Pupils. Pupils learnt all about Raspberry Pi which is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games. Year 8 Pupils had an awesome time today developing new skills learning how to re-programme their computers using the Raspberry Pi. Well done Year 8. – See more at:
