In our school, Room 9 will take part in EU Code Week.

Our aim is to run introductory workshops in coding each day in our class during the week.

We hope to try Scratch, Hour of Code, Lego Robotics, Bee Bots and Wonder Dots.

We are running these workshops with the support of Science on Stage.

Our special thanks goes to SAP for the wonderful Scratch workshop for all our 2nd classes, and to Galway Education Centre for the loan of the laptops for the Scratch workshops.
