Coding is a short course for the Junior Cycle which will give students an introduction into the fundamentals of the new Computer Science course that is being brought in for Senior Cycle.

Students are thoroughly enjoying getting to grips with the various aspects of coding including writing and testing code through program, app, games, animations and website development.

So far, students have used HTML and Scratch coding. There has also been a successful link made with the Institute of Technology Tallaght, who are very kindly inviting our students to participate in workshops in their engineering department throughout the year. The introduction of Microbits which is a pocket sized codeable computer that can be used to control an LED display board is also an exciting venture the students can’t wait to start.

More to come from coding soon!
