It’s a micro wha’? Come to #MegadojoIE in Maynooth and meet the Micro:bit !
We at Coderdojo Ireland HQ were beyond thrilled when Lorraine Underwood said she’d be home to Ireland for Megadojo weekend, and could run us two workshops with BBC Micro:bit and a fun twinkly lights seasonal theme. Lorraine is a teacher in the UK, whose projects with the Micro:bit are very creative and can be followed via her twitter feed @LMcUnderwood
For those who don’t know the Micro:bit – you’re in for a treat. Our own Microsoft evangelist in Ireland, Stephen Howell, has been introducing it to educators, and it is very very popular with all who meet it. It is a plug ‘n program experience, quite intuitive – anyone familiar with block based programming can be up and running in a few minutes.
If you want to join a micro:bit workshop with Lorraine in the Maynooth University Megadojo on Saturday Dec 2nd, either at 10.30 am or 3.30pm, you are welcome – but you MUST register at Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/megadojo-2017-maynooth-tickets-40018813348
