The Gaelscoil Thulach na nÓg were a great success last week. Students and facilitators alike had great fun. Students learnt and taught each other a great deal about coding and produced wonderful festive greeting cards.
Originally the plan by Pól, Bernie and Fiona - the session facilitators - was to introduce the students to coding via the Scratch.
Some of the inspiring creations exhibited included: Santa bouncing on a trampoline - presents flying out of his sack - as he bid the viewer “Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas”, Ice skating reindeer and Dublin City sleigh rides.
Hopefully we will be back gain soon to build on those sessions, maybe adding Arduino Scratch elements to the amazing greeting cards already created.
