Event Details

Join us for an afternoon of technology based fun at Powerscourt, Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow - Saturday the 1st of December 2018.

As with all Coderdojo events this is 100% free and we are catering for young people aged between 8 and 18.

We will be running beginner Scratch workshops for the younger attendees along with HTML and programming groups for the older age groups.  These are aimed across the skill levels so both existing attendees and those that might have a passing interest will find a workshop to suit on the day.

We'll have Pizza and refreshments on the day.  Due to limited numbers booking is essential. Tickets are available, free of change, on this page.  Tickets are available available now until all tickets are allocated.

PLEASE NOTE: You only need 1 ticket per Child.  The different workshops (as below) all take place concurrently in the same conference room and everyone will be relatively near each other (so it's no problem to have 2 siblings doing different things).  No tickets are required for Parents.

This event is taking place in the Golf Club house at Powerscourt house & gardens.  More information below.  If you have any questions please contact us on info@coderdojodublin.com
