The Hour of Code

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We had a special Christmas party for the end of CoderDojo 2014.  This was part of the Hour of Code global coding movement.  If you have never coded before you will love the this hour of code website which gives you free resources 

Some of the photos below features girls and boys coding the ‘Frozen Characters’ to move around.  It doesn’t feel like coding even though all the children and teenagers are learning key programming skills.  The coders were from age 6-17 (Even the 17 year olds did the frozen coding challenge!) Try it yourself, nothing to download, just click!


The kids and adults all had pizza and cake afterwards and there were attempts at Christmas classics and some 1980’s pop hit by the enthusiastic singers (you know who you are!). Thanks to the Lopez- Steffensen family for providing the chocolate cake.  We will miss you over the next few months but hope you will join us again after your travels.

Thanks to Linda O’Sullivan, Lecturer in Computing, and Tim Horgan, Head of Computing for organising the whole evening with all the computer laboratory access.  It was a great evening.

Finally best of luck to Aoife and Zainib  who are developing their Young Scientist entry with Jean Michel Rubillion.  We will be rooting for you in January.

See all the rest of the coders in January.  We will be back on January 16th.
