Did you manage to complete the first turtle project?

Can you make an interesting repeating geometric pattern of your own using the for loops? There’s a good example of a star in the Python Turtle Documentation. Can you find any others.

In the second turtle project you’ll learn how to use functions. Here’s an interesting one to try that uses a recursive function. (Which is one that calls itself.) I found this using a google image search on ‘python turtle examples‘

from turtle import * def striangle(depth,base): down() if depth == 0: begin_fill() for i in 0,1,2: forward(base) left(120) end_fill() else: for i in 0,1,2: striangle(depth-1,base) up() forward(base*2**depth) left(120) down()

reset() striangle(6,5)

Python is the funnest thing ever!

I completed the Bescii Project. I found it really fun and interesting. It showed you all the Debugging things and how to make the ART.

Priya, well done! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I must have a go at it myself! Maybe you can tell us all about it at Code Club tonight?
