It’s another busy morning at DD in the WebWorkHouse. The place is buzzing with talk of Minecraft servers, Coderdojo Coolest Projects, SketchUp and Tinkercad. Parents watch from the sidelines and lend a hand if needed. When not, there’s always lots of delicious coffee to keep them happy!
As always, Paul points to the various tools available to power the ninjas’ arsenal. Then a list of DD challenges is discussed and the Ninja Superpower Points (NSPP) that can be earned when a challenge is completed. Teamwork earns extra points and NSPP can be cashed in for ninja designed 3D prints. A scale (measurement) template is created and this ninja tool will be used to accurately measure ‘real life’ objects.
DD has entered a few projects in the Coderdojo Coolest Projects event in Dublin on Saturday June 13th. The group is very excited about showing their work and viewing all the other project from Coderdojo groups around the country. In the meantime, the DD projects need some further development and fine-tuning but we still have time so it’s heads’ together and all hands on deck!
