Megadojo South East

Coderdojo Kilkenny is part of a global movement of coding clubs since 12 May 2012. Our volunteer mentors help young people learn to code, build websites, apps, games, robots, design & problem solve for free. On Sunday,15th April, 4 Dojos - Coderdojo Kilkenny, Wexford, Tramore and Waterford - are collaborating for the very first time in organising Megadojo South East. Coderodojo Kilkenny is hosting the event here in The Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny. We are inviting young people to a Taster session of computer coding. A MegaDojo is a large scale CoderDojo event that brings together young people from several Dojos as well as those who’ve never attended a Dojo before. Children under 13 need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian on the day. The event will run from 10am to 4:00pm made up of 3 separate consecutive 1.5hr sessions. Throughout the day, we’ll be running coding Workshops covering topics such as Scratch, Meet Edison, Python and VFX. We have workshops that are suitable for complete beginners to advanced coders. We have some hands-on tech-based activities, coding workshops, and demos from companies (ranging from multinationals to locally based start-ups). Engineers Ireland are supporting the event and will have a stand promoting careers in Engineering on the day. Raffle tickets will be on sale (€5 each) for A Tech Hamper Raffle - prize includes a drawing pad, a bouncy castle voucher and a Meet Edison robot. The event starts at 10am. Session 1: 10 -11:30 Break Session 2: 12 - 1:30 Lunch break Session 3: 2:30 - 4 Eventbrite tickets are now live.
