James Whelton, the founder of the CoderDojo movement was a guest mentor at Saturday's event on Boyneside. Attended by 60 kids - and nearly as many adults! :) - CoderDojo Drogheda is drawing kids from Balbriggan, Navan, Trim, Dundalk, Newry and even Portlaoise.
A Church or a Dojo?
This week we had the amazing Highlanes Gallery as our venue. Highlanes is an early 19th century Franciscan church that we gifted to the people of Drogheda by the order who have a 760 year association with the town.
This week it became a temple of code ... very cool!
Scratch and Kinect
Stephen Howell (@saorog) impressed with an awesome demo of Scratch and Kinect! We had kids 'as the controller' in Scratch games which was really cool. Thanks Stephen, we hope Stephen will lead the next Dojo on more advanced Scratch topics.
