In this Minecraft session we shall be carrying on with the Javascript programming that we did last time. The challenge is to combine the automatic house-building in Javascript with a group roller-coaster.

Work sheets for Javascript:

Note: For this sessions we'll be running on Minecraft 1.5.2 rather than the recently updated 1.6 version. If you have the option it would be better for you NOT to upgrade to version 1.6 until after the session.

Requests and Ideas

Please add any requests for help with any topics or ideas for sessions.

Scratch workshop?

Some/most folk have seen the Code Club worksheets/projects. Any ideas beyond that ? Maybe an intro to Scratch 2.0 (which would have to be purely web-based, as download .exe not available until later in summer) ? New stuff of interest might include the video sensing block (do most laptops brought have a webcam we can exploit?).
