On April 18th, we bring you the third of 5 classes, introducing the Junior Cycle Coding Short Course, for parents. After all, it's easier to help with the homework if you understand it yourself.
The third session will explain concepts underlying the internet (including some of the bits developed here in Tyndall National Institute), go through some of the internet protocols, get you the basics of building a website (this is where you show off your topics) and explain how data is represented and stored.
And on May 2nd, we bring you the fourth of 5 classes, introducing the Junior Cycle Coding Short Course, for parents. After all, it's easier to help with the homework if you understand it yourself.
This session will explain talk about signs, sums, comparing and Boolean Logic (as in the George Boole building around the corner). We'll cover basic data structures, functions and procedures, flow control and documenting things. We should have an introduction to the Python language too.
If you would like to make your own MakerDojo session, well, there is a guide to setting up your own MakerDojo.
Interested in taking part?
Ticketing is needed for our workshops as we only have so much equipment to go around, but our touring version does not have the restrictions. You could keep an eye on Eventbrite, or you could sign up here for news of the next MakerDojo workshop in Tyndall National Institute!
