Description:

A drop-in-when-you-can Turtlestitching workshop from 10:00 to 17:00 this Thursday 19 October in room 0.11 in the Lloyd Institute at TCD. Turtlestitch is a jigsaw-programming environment for creating embroideries from code. Bring your brain, a laptop or tablet, something material you’d like to embroider on, and you can use my programmable embroidery machine to stitch your own design. I have thread in primary colours, metallic, luminous and conducting (bring your own LEDs / batteries). Halloween themes may be creatively fruitful! ‘something you’d like to embroider on’ could mean anything from a small square to a t-shirt or hoody. I’d humbly suggest not something too precious in case it all goes wrong. There is no set start or stop time, but just to make some kind of order out of chaos, I’ll do an introduction on the hour, starting at 11:00 (assuming anyone turns up!). If you’d like to start now: www.turtlestitch.org And no need to RSVP, but let me know if you are coming!

Nearby upcoming events:

A group of secondary school students will coach approximately a dozen 3rd & 4th class students who attend Learning Support for Special Needs, in code using 'Hour of Code' activities from the Code.org website. The Learning Support students accompanied by the student tutors and supervised by members of the Parents' Association will be timetabled to initially teach younger classes code, then their peers and finally older classes in the school. This will develop their self esteem, their 'standing' amongst their classmates, and their problem solving and coding skills.

Programming with BeeBots and Lego WeDo for all classes in the school.

We aim to enable our pupils to be creators, not just consumers. We use team teaching and a buddy system to help our senior learners inspire and tutor our junior buddies. We use the resources from cs first and code.org to enable our pupils to be confident in creating code.
