What’s Happening 8-Dec-2014

Nick ran an exciting Scratch challenge, jumping head-first into the Christmas/holiday spirit.  We will continue with fun challenges over the next two Fridays (we have Fri Dec 12th and Fri Dec 19th, as dojo sessions, before we break for the holidays).
The Kinsale Coderdojo group is going to re-run the DIT Roboslam event we held over the arts festival.  The arts festival event was heavily oversubscribed, so we’ll give everyone in the Kinsale dojo a chance to design and build their own robots, in our friendly, relaxed pace.   See the following link for photos of the 2014 Arts Festival Roboslam workshop….
If you are interested in designing and building your own robot, then please see Jim or Nick, to get your name on the list!   Like with the Arts Festival workshop, we’re striving to keep the cost to the absolute minimum, but we have to cover our costs, so we’re asking €15 for every robot kit.  Two or more can share a kit, if you want to keep the cost even lower.  I’d suggest that those Kinsale dojo’ers that don’t have much coding experience, find a partner, and make-up a team….it is actually MORE FUN to build a robot in a team!
Merry Christmas from the Kinsale Coderdojo team!   Jim, Nick, Des and Alan
