Description

We are delighted to partner with DojoCon 2018 for this months instalment of Tech Thursday, Kilkenny. DojoCon is the annual global conference for CoderDojo community members, the general public and young people to share their experiences, develop relationships and learn from each other.

DojoCon 2018 is on in Kilkenny from18-21st October and there is something for everyone.

The CoderDojo community consists of nearly 2,000 local programming clubs for 58,000 young people being creative with technology. With the help of 12,000 volunteers in 103 countries, we will be harnessing some of that knowledgebase for an exceptional Tech Thursday event.

Joining us will be parents who are active volunteers in the local Dojo and their thoughts in a panel talk on technology, education and employment in Kilkenny. A presentation on 'Digital Culture' by Aisling Curtis, Commercial Director, Microsoft Ireland and 'Women in STEM' panel talk with participants at different levels in or towards a STEM career.
