CoderDojo Ninjas wow the crowds at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition 2015


Welcome to the BT Young Scientist Exhibition 2015

Thanks to the generosity of the BT Young Scientist Exhibition, CoderDojo had a stand in the industries hall where CoderDojo Ninjas and the winners from the This is Not a Game Challenge joined forces to showcase their cool projects for the attendees.

CoderDojo Community Projects

Over the 3 days there was a total of 15 projects showcased by the CoderDojo community with members traveling from across the country to showcase their cool projects!

Niall (Wexford CoderDojo) demoes his knowledge of making games with swift!

Also at the the stand we ran HTML sessions using the CoderDojo “My first website” Sushi cards, bite sized learning for young people to complete their first website. These sessions were a hit with the youth at the event and the sessions booked out quickly every day! Over the 3 days we thought over 100 young people to create their first website!

Congrats to the This is Not a Game Winners!

The This is Not a Game Challenge is an initiative launched by the U.S. Embassy in Dublin, the CoderDojo Foundation and Griffith College to give secondary level students the tools to create video games with a social conscience! At the event the winning teams were presented a medal by the US Ambassador for their participation in the challenge.
