New to DojoMór this year, is the ExpoMór exhibition. This is where students, parents, and teachers, can visit our new virtual exhibition centre. It is an opportunity to get to know the partners, ask a few questions, pick up some brochures and enter competitions.
“Events like DojoMór are about laying the groundwork to inspire and educate young people to be the next generation of Irish coders, while at the same time, doing so in a fun and creative manner. I have been a strong supporter of helping young people to explore coding, right from the earliest days of CoderDojo in Ireland, as I believe that expertise in coding will be a big part of our county’s success in the future.”
An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin
