All Game of Codes workshops are funded by Science Foundation Ireland.
These three-day coding workshops will be facilitated by The Academy of Code and delivered online using Zoom. A link to join the Zoom session will be sent to you approximately one hour before the event starts.
All you need to get started is a PC/Mac, mic/headset, webcam and a broadband connection (and we can survive without the webcam if necessary!)
Please note: A valid email address is required to register for the workshop. South Dublin Libraries will forward the email address you use to register to the Academy of Code who will then send an access code to your email address to enable you to attend the workshop. The contact details (name, email address and phone number) you supply to South Dublin Libraries via Eventbrite will be accessible by The Academy of Code on the day(s) of the event(s) for the duration of the event(s) in case they need to assist you in accessing the Zoom session.
Mainly aimed at coding beginners, but we'll have stretch goals and extra bits and pieces for students who have some coding experience already.
A parent or guardian will be required to be present for the duration of the workshop and there is a limit of one pupil per computer screen. All participants must be able to attend all three days of these workshops.
