No CoderDojo at DCU this summer

At CoderDojoDCU we are on holidays this summer 2014.

It has been a pleasure to have you all join us this year and great to see so many taking part in Coolest Projects Awards!

Special thanks to all the mentors who’ve helped us out throughout the year and also to the parents! Many of you have been a fantastic help.

Bank Holiday Session

Hi all,

Due to the Bank Holiday this weekend we are only running one session from 10-12. We usually take a break for Bank Holidays but some mentors have volunteered to help out 🙂

Unfortunately we have to limit numbers due to space in the room. Please do not try to attend without a ticket as we will have to turn you away at the door.

If we are able to release additional tickets we will post an update on our Google Group forum. Please subscribe to our forum for updates https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/coderdojo-dcu

Kind Regards,
