Facilitator(s): The Code Lab Dundalk
Our guest speaker, Dr Niamh Shaw, an inspirational Dundalk native, an engineer, scientist, writer and performer, will talk to the girls about following their dreams, and how her big dream is to travel into Space!
The girls will learn the basics of computer coding using Scratch, a fun visual programming language for children. The theme for our workshops will be "Girls In Space", they will learn how to design and code a space-themed animation, how to add music, movement, change scenes, and they can even star in the animation themselves!
We will show the girls that technology is fun and creative, and not just for boys! We will tap into their curiosity and encourage them to explore technology and show them that they can become innovators and inventors of technology in the future.
