LEGO yes WeDo!

Ninjas get busy setting up the component trays for LEGO WeDo kitsThe  “materials and resources’ management  crew” are busy setting up the first of six LEGO WeDo kits for use in the club. Our old LEGO Mindstorms kits from the last century were not up the challenge so we decided to go for six WeDo kits rather than two of the latest Mindstorm kits.

The Mindstorm reference comes from the constructionist publication
Mindstorms: Children, Computers, and Powerful Ideas by Seymour Papert

Last year’s SASNS CoderDojo entrants had to withdraw because of family commitments.

Coolest Projects International 2019

It is that time of year again!

Online Registration is now open for Coolest Projects International 2019 in the RDS Dublin next May. Parents/Guardians will need to login with their CoderDojo account details to register and complete the proposed project details.

The event takes place in the RDS Main Hall, Dublin, on the 5th of May 2019.
Unfortunately, that Saturday is also the start of the May Bank Holiday weekend so check your calendar.
This is also the shortest project preparation period since the event began so decide what you or your group want to submit. Then submit the project outline as soon as possible, you can always change it later.

Entrants can submit projects previously entered in other educational events.
Only one project can be entered by a ninja or group.
Check out the rest of the Rules and Regulations, they are straight forward and easy to read.

Admission is free and it is always a great family day out.
