On Saturday the 7th of June, Coderdojo Coolest projects hosted their 3rd annual event in the Helix in DCU. CoderDojo is an open source, volunteer led movement orientated around running free not-for-profit coding clubs for young people. At the event we set up an Ultimaker 2 with the Doodle3D this enabled the kids to quickly get an understanding of the processes involved in 3D printing. It was also a platform for the kids to demonstrate their creative sides. It was incredible to see some of the kids imagination and outputted 3D prints from the kids using the Doodle3D, such as the Coderdojo Logos, Flowers and even toy guns!
We also co-ordinated a competition for participants to win a free Ultimaker original kit. The eventual winners were the Coderdojo from Dungarvin in Co.Waterford.
