Christmas Break

Last Friday was our last CoderDojo session for 2015. It was a full house as usual overflowing with enthusiasm, creativity and mayhem! We have had a great year in Clonakilty – visits by Drones, lots of robotics, Makey-Makey, CoolestProjects, Scratch Competitions, Hour of Code and an amazing Expo at the end of May. We had a great night last Friday too with a small party, some guitar playing and lots of coding fun and creativity.

So over Christmas if you are looking for something to do here is a list with links to different tools we use at CoderDojo.

Hopefully that’ll keep you all busy coding over the festive season  🙂

So before we sign off for the festive season we would just like to thank a few people

  • Trevor Kingston from High Resolution for keeping us well stocked up in tutorials throughout the year plus allowing us to borrow his 3D printer occasionally.
  • Mags McCarthy for checkin everyone in!
  • Sean Hargaden’s Dad for donating a whole load of Arduinos to us in September
  • Our AMAZING mentors – Sinead, Wendy, Kate, Emer, Kevin, Joe, Ian and all those who help out occasionally and whenever they can. We are sooooo grateful!!! If I have forgotten anybody please let me know!!
  • SouthWestern who so generously sponsored us during the year
  • And finally – THE QUALITY HOTEL (and especially Irene O’Callaghan and David Henry) for the best CoderDojo venue in the world.

Finally, wishing you all and your families a very very Happy Christmas.

25 more sleeps!!

See you in 2016! We will be back on 8th January!
