An Aussie school has been making apps so people all round the world can play it.  Students from Aberfoyle Park High school, their schools even become the first in the country to be registered as a developer under its own name. They’ve created all using coding. Every twice a week they meet up at lunchtimes for a coding workshop. It’s been running for about three years know. Coding is using a combination of letters and blocks making a set of instructions on a digital object, that follows instructions. Coding is a bit hard to start off, but then it gets easier as you learn more. They code on tablets using a coding language called python and an app called pythonister. Python is a really easy to understand coding language and it allows them to use their iPads to create their own games. They need to work as a team to design entertaining and challenging games. And once they’re happy with their creation, they give their finished code to their teacher who sends it through to an app store. So far, the school’s got 7 games registered that anyone around the world can play. These guys are hoping to use the skills they’ve learned here to get a great job in the future.

Some of the kid’s opinions- RYAN: With all the new technology and robots coming out, I feel like coding is going to be an important aspect in the future so I want to use it to get a job and help me make a financial balance. GEORIGIA: I’d really like to get a job doing this kind of thing one day. I think it would be a really fun experience. TYLER: I’m definitely hoping to make this work in the real world especially since I’m very interested in html and I hope to code websites as well as games cause I heard you can make quite a buck out of that!

 

How many people are coding in the club?

Is it easier or harder than what we’re learning?

 

I now understand how coding is important, and it will be a huge part of the future. And how much it is encouraged at schools, and it’s becoming part of the curriculum. I know now that anyone can do coding, and this school real helps children and has a good program.

It’s that time of year again, when you wear a mask and dress up. When you’re a ghost, monster or demon. But when you get to that age you know there’s no such thing as monsters.

But when my family went off I got pushed and fell into this dusty mist. I looked up and there were thousands of ghosts just walking around, and I raced to hide but they were everywhere.

BTN- Electricity flow

At the Charter house, in the Great chamber Stephen Gray built a wooden frame. And from the top of the beam he suspended two swings using silk rope. He created electricity. He created another machine called the Hauksbee which created static electricity. With a large audience in attendance, he got one of the orphan boys who lived here at Charterhouse to lie across the two swings. Gray placed some gold leaf in front of him. He then generated electricity and charged the boy through a connecting rod. Gold leaf, even feathers, leapt to the boy’s fingers. Some of the audience claimed they could even see sparks flying out from his fingertips. Show business indeed. But to the curious and inquiring mind of Stephen Gray this said something else as well. Electricity could move from the machine to the boy’s body through to his hands. But the silk rope stopped it dead. It meant the mysterious electrical fluid could flow through some things but not through others. t led Gray to divide the world into two different kinds of substances. He called them ‘insulators’ and ‘conductors’. Insulators held electric charge within them and wouldn’t let it move, like the silk, or hair, glass and resin, whereas conductors allowed electricity to flow through them, like the boy or metals. It’s a distinction which is still crucial even today. Just think of these electric pylons. They work on the same principle that Gray deduced nearly 300 years ago. The wires are conductors. The glass and ceramic objects between the wire and the metal of the pylon are insulators that stop the electricity leaking from the wires into the pylon and down to the earth. They’re just like the silk ropes in Gray’s experiment. This observation is crucial even today. The power lines we have today work on the same system that Gray did his experiment did on almost 300 years ago.

What was his inspiration for the experiment?

How much energy did he use?

Why would he use this opportunity to get an audience?

I know understand about why they used power lines and how their important to our daily lives. You can also see the similarities between the insulators and conductors in power lines and in Gray’s experiment.
