With Term 1 now completed, we wanted to show you some of the great coding work that’s been going on.
Creating a game with Unity
Some groups were using the coding platform Unity (unity3d.com) to learn programming techniques and create simple games.
‘Jump’: Check out a game created by one of our young coders. You will need to download the files to your PC to be able to play. Download folder with files here This folder contains the game .exe file, entitled ‘Jump’ (the symbol is a yellow circle with a black dollar sign), plus the UnityPlayer.dll file, which will run the game.
Students have their own games saved. If you install Unity (codechampions.nz/2018/03/02/quick-guide-to-installing-unity/), they should be able to show you what they have created.
Coding with BeetleBlocks
Other groups used BeetleBlocks (beetleblocks.com). Here are some screenshots showing examples of work done.
