Programming embroidery workshop with families

Families working on programming to design embroideries using TurtleStitch.

This work was in preparation for a successful bid to the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) as part of their Discover programme to promote STEM to the wider population in Ireland.

The project is called OurKidsCode, and is a collaboration with the National Parents’ Council Primary (NPC).

It will design and test workshops for NPC to offer families who want to use computers creatively.
