Our goal is to ensure every child in Ireland has exposure to computer science classes. Trevor’s MSc thesis was ‘An examination of the use of computing to aid learning in Irish primary schools’. This study uncovered the best practice for delivering computer science to primary and post-primary students.
Trevor attended a number of UK Computing at Schools (cas.co.uk ) events and also recently visited Japan to explore the methods and best practices being used by leading countries.
“The programmers of tomorrow are the wizards of the future. You’re going to look like you have magic powers compared to everybody else.”
Our mission is to introduce as many kids as possible to computing & coding. To show the kids that the computer sector is a realistic viable option for their future careers whilst allowing them to have fun.
