My top 3 designing & coding moments from this term to honour Computer Science Week 2015

A very busy term (It seems like I am saying that a lot these days!) with a quite few coding and computer science opportunities. Here are my top three moments from the term.

  1. This message from my son yesterday in his #HourofCode. (His pride was enough to bring a tear to this #GeekDad’s eye.)

2. Teaching students to hack their assignments by integrating programming languages in our Design Club with some amazing colleagues.

3. Presenting at #bit15 conference in November. Such a great way to connect and share with colleagues. (Got a great idea for Makey Makey sword project to add some extra live action fun to his Minecrafting!)
