On Saturday we were in the RDS Dublin at the Coolest Projects event. We had an amazing day! There was lots of Coder Dojo ninjas showcasing the best of the best tech world projects! Five of us from Cloghans Hill CoderDojo went, Shakira, Nora, Cian and us!
At 12.30 we were judged ... Just in time to get onto the Opennet Innovation Stage! We were interviewed on it, it was so cool! There was giant screens in the cube shape up above us! We were interviews by Stephen Byrne and Maureen Butler! They were really cool! Stephen (from two tube) remembered us from Excited!!!! That was pretty neat! They asked us how much investment we needed to grow and spread our website so we all agreed $15 billion might do it!!!! We got a cool giant cheque!!
Later on in the day Nora from email@example.com and Cian had their turns on stage! Cian was being judged when Nora was up so our teacher missed hearing her. She was very disappointed.
After we had shown lots of people our website, we went to the awards hall. There was a ninja v robot war going on... I think the ninjas won!!!
We were delighted when we were named one of 20 winners on the open net innovators stage! Cian was another winner too!!
Today we got very exciting post from Alma Jordan of AgriKids. She has written some stories about farm safety based on some really cool characters. She has sent us the first and second book which was just published! We are going to read them and blog all about them soon! Thanks Alma big thumbs up on the cover and illustrations from us here! Our classmates think the two on the cover could be us 😀
My Favourite was The Big Brown Bull.It was good and funny . It was a big scary because the bull almost squashed the girl,Sarah .But then the bull flew over her head and she got out of the field safe an sound.She did not see the bull because she took off her new glasses. Aoibheann.
I liked The Tree Swing.It was the first book and they discovered a hedge sprite in their garden.Then when Tom,the boy was in trouble because he was on a dangerous swing the hedge sprite saved him.
Aoibheann + Padraic here, we are always being asked what we get up to and to tell people of what we are at next so we though blogging is a great way to share all things new and exciting! Keep an eye on twitter for our updates too
