Whizzkids DCU Week 5

Whizzkids DCU Week 5 was great fun and a mix of nationalities and abilities. The group consisted of novices, old hands and a very able hacker. Besides learning HTML, CSS and Javascript as they constructed their webpages the coders also got to work the BBC Micro:bit board. They were also introduced to the Raspberry Pi 3 and its various uses. Both boards were received with great enthusiasm. The predictable run failures resulted in code debugging by tutors and coders alike. The culprits were usually misspells and/or absent colons of brackets. It was a great experience over the last 5 weeks to work with children who were personally motivated and actually wanted to be there.
