The remaining 6th classes took part in virtual STEM sessions with the DreamSpace team today. It was a fantastic experience for all the children. They learned lots about the world of STEM, mixed reality, artificial intelligence and also coded with MicroBits. Lots of complicated code was written and tested!
Thanks to Niamh and Michael of Microsoft DreamSpace for facilitating the sessions today. We look forward to hopefully making an actual visit some day soon.
Two of our 6th classes took part in virtual coding and STEM sessions with Corey from the DreamSpace team today. It was an amazing experience for all the children and they learned so much about the world of STEM, coded with microbits and even designed a rock, paper, scissors game themselves!
Thanks to the DreamSpace Team for facilitating us and hopefully we will get to visit at some stage in the future.
The other two 6th classes have their sessions to look forward to next week.
Take a look at some behind the scenes photos of RTE and Virgin Media news crews visiting our school for the CyberSafe kids report.
Some fantastic coding in 6th class this week!
Well done to Mia Horgan in 4th class who made it through to the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge finals during TechWeek in April.
She did great!

Take a look at the children in 2nd class Room 12 learning to code with Blue Bots.
Mr. MacCann’s 4th class took part in the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge earlier this year.
Today it we received the exciting news that Mia Horgan was a winner in the challenge and she will now go forward to take part in the national final as part of TechWeek 2021.
Well done Mia! And well done to all the class who took part.
