DKIT Events

Dear All,

DkIT is delighted to announce the launch of this year’s Computing Summer camp programme. Starting on the 22nd of June we offer

seven different camps from web design and animation (2d & 3d) to music through coding, and microbit programming. All details are available at; I have attached a poster that I hope you can share within your school.

We would also like to remind you that DkIT in partnership with multiple other third level institutions, are running a national competition for primary and secondary students. The challenge is to draw a piece of art by coding a virtual robot with VEX VR.

Watch the informational video to learn how your students can enter the challenge and find out some top tips that will help them to create a coding masterpiece!
