I will be teaching a five day course about Scratch (coding software) in Kilkenny Education Centre July 2nd to 6th. There are only two places left, if you are interested then google Kilkenny Education Centre and email ’em.
The below is an update from LERO (The Irish Software Engineering Research Centre)
In conjunction with CoderDojo Athlone, Clare McInerney will run an introductory Scratch workshop in Athlone IT on Saturday July 7th from 9:30 to 3:00pm (for adults). Places are available for this event. For more details and to register for this free event click here.

Scratch as Gaeilge:
LERO are delighted to announce that Rory McGann PDST and Íde Ruaidh have made an Irish version of the Scratch interface available. Instructions for the update to use the Irish Scratch interface are available here.
We are really excited about having an Irish version of the interface – thanks Rory – and we hope many of the gaelscoileanna will enjoy this.
