This project, exploring basic encryption, is a useful introduction to data security as well as iterating through strings to manipulate them. The program create a ‘substitution cipher’, one of the most basic forms of encryption. It also demonstrates that, for more complex chained commands, Scratch becomes rather...
This activity is an introduction to writing programs that can handle errors. It also helps students to understand number bases, by guiding them through the writing of a ‘base converter’ program.

Recent developments in MakeCode now make data-capture from micro:bits very simple via the USB cable. The data can be graphed in real time in MakeCode and exproted as CSV files. Using tools such as Excel and GeoGebra's Spreadsheet View, the data can be manipulated, analysed and modelled. With a pair of...

This is working progress and a draft copy will be out soon!
This issue of Computer Science for Fun focuses on creative computing. Can a machine even ever be truly creative? After all they are just blindly following their programs. Surely that isn’t what creativity is about! But what do we really mean by creativity? We need to decide if we are to write programs that are...
