I run a club in a school with a 10 week programme taken from the resources on the Raspberry Pi website.
The list is:
Getting Started With Scratch
Burping Jelly Baby
For the 10th week they can pick any project they want.
We have a raspberry pi each and some leds, resistors, jumper cables etc. for everyone, but limited other equipment (e.g we have only 3 cameras, 3 sense hats etc.)
We started with primary 7 children and they have been fine and understood the projects and were able to experiment at the end of each session.
Primary 6 children were also okay with a bit of guidance along the way.
We are now onto primary 5 children and I'm finding they are struggling, especially using python as it is unforgiving, and even subtle errors, such as an incorrect capital letter, will mean they are not getting the code to work, and need adult help to debug.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep it fun and engaging for this age group or projects that are easier and are rewarding immediately?
