Hi CESI,

Just a reminder that (cesi list contributor) Clare Mcinerney of Lero ( www.scratch.ie) and myself [Stephen Howell] with the IT Tallaght Computing Dept. are once again hosting Scratch Day Ireland: http://day.scratch.mit.edu/event/353

Scratch is a fantastic free tool for teaching and learning the logic behind programming. It is suitable from 5th/6th class primary and secondary school students.

You can download Scratch from http://scratch.mit.edu

Scratch Day is an international event held simultaneously in 120 locations worldwide.

*Where: In the Computing Dept. Labs in IT Tallaght, Belgard Road, Tallaght,
Dublin 24*

*When: Saturday 21st May, 11am – 1pm*

*Cost: Free*

We will also be hosting the finals of the all-Ireland Scratch Programming Competition.

This is an excellent chance for students, parents and teachers to come along and see what is possible with Scratch.

We will have:

– Hands-on Scratch demonstrations
– Finals of annual Scratch Ireland Programming Competition http://scratch.ie/
– Program Scratch using the XBox 360 Kinect controller! http://vimeo.com/18562642

We hope you can make it.

Sadly, I can’t be there myself this year, but for more information, please email bfeeney@ittdublin.ie or Clare.McInerney@lero.ie
