CoderDojo Update

coderdojo.jpg
The end of year CoderDojo Coolest Projects event was on Saturday in the RDS. More than 1,000 coders (Ninjas), from 17 countries presenting their tech projects they've been working on. There was a team of girls from Italy beside us and judges told us teams had come from as far as Argentina and Australia for the event. 10,000 people came to the RDS to see the projects on Saturday.

We had 4 Greenlanes pupils representing the school and our CoderDojo, presenting their projects, coded in Scratch at Greenlanes CoderDojo (and home!).

Ben Forrest, Ferdia and Naoise Watson presented their 'Snakes and Ladders' game which the judges and everybody that came to our stand loved playing.

Hugh McNally presented his 'Lynx OS' project, a mobile operating system simulator with great apps. The great news is that Hugh won first prize in the Scrarch 11 year old category! https://twitter.com/coolestprojects/status/876108063769538560
Hugh won some lovely prizes and they are richly deserved.

So we're very proud Hugh is part of our CoderDojo at Greenlanes and very proud of Ben, Ferdia and Naoise for creating their great snakes and ladders game and showing it so enthusiastically on Saturday. We hope this will inspire more coding ninjas in Greenlanes to come to CoderDojo and build awesome things.
Richard and John at Greenlanes CoderDojo.
