Digital Nations 2030

On Monday the 19th of February, the year 7&8 extension group went to Cordis hotel in the big city. We went there to experience an event called, digital nations 2030. We went into the crystal room (it wasn’t actually made out of crystals) and got introduced to a whole bunch of people from omg tech and code avengers they had a little talk with us and then sent us off.

The first thing I did was makey makey with food. There was peaches a banana and chocolates. I have to admit I ate one or two of the chocolates but nothing else. I then moved on to robots which was really easy because i’d done it before. Then I moved onto the code avengers puzzle quiz thingy. I spun the wheel and then got a chocolate.

Overall I learnt that robots are really annoying and have to have everything perfect. I learnt that you can do makey makey with fruit and food products and I learnt that numbers in code can make letters on a screen.

Coding Guide

Bethan’s review of commands and functions:
Commands and functions are very important things in code that lets start with commands.
Commands are the instructions we use to control anything we want on the computer, ipad,
or even your mobile phone but in our case we were using a little character called Byte. To
control Byte we had to make him follow our commands when we put in more than one we
made a sequence. A sequence is a group of commands put together to make a set of instructions.
Functions are a group of commands put together to make one command so before we we had turn
right we only had turn left so that was when we added them together three times and created turn right.


Naomi’s review on the commands and functions:
My experience on swift playground was very easy on commands.
But when we pasted commands we went to functions but I know functions are supposed to be helpful
but it was kind of tricky.The only reason why it was tricky was because we were kind of used to
commands and the function just messed up the code so we had to find a code that included the
functions and our commands.But overall it was fun and had a lot of thinking involved.


Hinerangi’s review on code commands and functions:
These types of code especially commands and functions was very hard but at the same time it was
a bit easy. The commands and functions on swift playground can be a bit hard but it is very important
that you understand it which is what myself and my teammates need to improve on. Command means
a type of instruction which tells specifically what a computer, tablet and a phone needs to do.
Overall it was awesome and fun especially having to work as a team / group, as well as having everyone
communicating in these types of code.

Summer Learning Journey: Day 3: Activity 1


It wouldn't really be hard to describe how I feel about having  big family because I already have a huge family. I would mostly feel like I have plenty of people to play with and talk to when i'm bored.  But it would probably be hard getting some alone time to read a book (if my family was all living together).
