The Scratch Club students had a fantastic day experiencing what it would be like to be a computer science student in the Institute of Technology in Blanchardstown.
My favourite part of the day was learning about hacking. I never realised that so many passwords are so easy to hack. I will definitely have to tell my Mam to check how secure her passwords are on the websites we learned about. – Jessica, 5th Class
I loved learning how to use GoAnimate.com. We made a really fun animation. – Ambra, 5th Class
As part of the workshop the students had the opportunity to showcase some of their own projects that they have made in school. The staff in ITB were blown away by their coding knowledge. They also got to see the amazing projects the boys in Scoil Bhríde B.N.S. have made using Tinkercad. We will definitely have to try Tinkercad out in Scratch Club.
