Creative Technologies Project sponsored by Creative Ireland have a number of exciting courses taking place over the next couple of weeks. Each course is facilitated through two online video call sessions set a week apart. Each session will be 2 hours long (4hrs total).
There are 3 training courses available:
· STEAM (Introduction to Circuits and Maker activities)
· Digital Creativity (Introduction to Mobile Filmmaking)
· Computer Science (Creative coding with BBC Microbit)
The available dates and times for each are listed below. All participants will receive a Starter kit to the value of €250 with equipment for use in their work with young people. This kit will be based on the training course that they complete.
The training is available to staff and volunteers working with young people in out of classroom settings (e.g. youth work organisations, school completion programmes, family resource centres, etc.). It would be great if you could circulate this with your network and if you have any people that would be interested in taking on training.
