creative computing classes Skerries presents:
The next few cccSkerries Camps
Run by Sabine McKenna, cccSkerries. Location: cccSkerries training room in Kelly’s Bay.
July & August Camps
- *Waiting List:*SUM01: Introduction to Coding using Scratch. For those new to coding. Create an animation with your own graphics, make a mini game that you code yourself. No experience, no laptop required.
10 a.m. to 1 p.m., five days (Mon 15 to Fri 19 July), €125. 1st – 4th Class. *Join the waiting list here. *Fully booked.*
- *Currently closed:*SUM02: Introduction to Python through Minecraft. 1st – 4th Year; also for 5th/6th Class. You don’t need to know any Python beforehand. And if you’ve already done some… so much the better, but this will be different from any Python you’ve done with cccSkerries before! (Unless you were at the June Python & Minecraft camp, in which case it’d be more of that sort of fun.)
10 a.m. to 1 p.m., five days (Mon 22 to Fri 26 July), €125. *Register interest here.
- Minecraft Camp! Survival. Spend a few days in a brand new world, and see where you can take the game in that time. Cooperative fun in starting a new civilisation. 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., five days (Mon 29 July – Fri 2 Aug), €125. 1st – 4th Class. *Book here or by email to sabine@cccSkerries.com .
- SUM04: Introduction to the BBC Micro:Bit.
This is a first for cccSkerries – we’ll work with a miniature “computer” that is roughly the size of a credit card and can be programmed to do all sorts of fascinating things. It can detect being shaken or tilted, it can display messages (one letter at a time), it can measure temperature and much more. Includes a micro:bit to keep! These amazing contraptions are easy to program – during this week, we’ll try out a number of different projects with them. Be prepared for some entry-level electronics fun!
10 a.m. to 1 p.m., four days (Tue 6 Aug to Fri 9 Aug), €125 (includes a Micro:Bit). 5th Class and older. *Book here.
- * Waiting List* SUM05: Minecraft Camp *Fully booked.*
This is the camp for fans of Creative Minecraft. We’ll be in a shared world and take on some individual and group builds.
10 a.m. to 1 p.m., five days (Mon 19 to Fri 23 Aug), €125. 1st – 4th Class. *Join the Waiting List here.
- SUMXX: Additional Minecraft Camp!!!
This week’s morning camp filled up in a flash, so here’s an extra one for those who missed it. We’ll be in a shared world and take on some individual and group builds… or go into survival, depending on what the campers prefer. We might even do both!
2.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m., five days (Mon 19 to Fri 23 Aug), €125. 1st – 4th Class. *Book here.
