At the end of the day everyone was awarded an official coding camp certificate! Pretty cool!

This was a really inspiring event to witness, the ninjas overcame language barriers and worked together to create awesome games and websites to address social issues. They also worked together to present their projects at the end of the week to their peers! This is what CoderDojo is all about!
