Summer 2019 - Virtual Camp
June 17th to 21st (10am to 3pm)
Virtual Venues are our way of reaching students across Ireland who can’t be with us in-person for our camps.
Students work from home, connected to our instructors by live video chat. They will enjoy the same high standard of tuition that our in-person students enjoy, and also take part in many of the activities with students attending the Digital Hub course which runs concurrently.
We’re delighted to bring this new way of learning to our summer program for the first time, and excited to welcome students from all over Ireland to learn with us!

TASTE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE (Secondary)
This course, aimed at 13 to 18-year-old students, is the perfect opportunity to get a feeling for what a 3rd level course in computer science is really like.
