Kids Coder Club is led by Trevor Murphy Msc ITM. This entity provides extra curriculum computing classes to primary and postprimary children. We also specialise in aiding primary and post-primary school implement computer sciences in their classroom.

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 really viable option for their future careers whilst allowing them to have fun.

Our goal is to help children become independent learners, creative thinkers and able team-workers while developing their own high-level technology and computer skills. We encourage ‘e-confidence’ in children in an age when computers and technology are essential life skills.
