Letterkenny Institute of Technology will host an exciting coding event this weekend, with young people aged 7-17 invited to take part in a day of fun tech workshops.
LYIT is one of five third level institutions from across Ireland taking part in ‘DojoMór’ – Ireland National’s coding event for children and teenagers aged 7-17 years.
Third level institutes in Cork, Tralee, Dundalk, Letterkenny and Maynooth are each hosting a DojoMór this year in campuses across the country on Saturday 12 October.
With support from the Higher Education Authority, they are teaming up with CoderDojos from across Ireland and inviting young people aged from 7-17 to learn to code games, websites, electronic kits and more as well as see and hear what cool technology companies are doing and using.
The number of young people participating will be bigger than ever, and is open to young people with an interest in all things coding and fun!
This year, organisers are predicting over 5,000 young people will participate across the country in the DojoMór 2019. With an ethos of accessibility at its core, CoderDojo Ireland are proud to announce that all computers and equipment required will be provided, to encourage young people who may not have access to computers to also attend.
Sessions on offer from LYIT on the day will be in Scratch, Python, Swift and Mobile App development. There will be session options for complete newbies as well as those looking for more challenging activities.
