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!

CoderDojo Athy Weekly sessions

Sat, Oct 5, 2019 10:00 AM

Coderdojo Athy has been running since 2013 and we have been extremely fortunate to have had many mentors both male and female from the world of computing volunteering their time and expertise. Over this period, we have endeavored to provide education and training to all young people in the Athy community in an inclusive way. CoderDojo lends itself well to children who find it difficult to interact with other children where they can code on their own, yet supports groups where groups of children can come together to build team projects. It is common for children on the Autism spectrum to have an interest in Digital skills.
