Coolest Projects 2015 – 2 winners from Dun Laoghaire!

Well, everyone was a winner really, it was a fantastic day at the Coolest Projects in the RDS on 13th June, with about 650 ninjas showing off 500 projects!

We were especially pleased to have two winners from Dun Laoghaire, with Lexi Schoene receiving the RTE overall Design Award, and Fionan O Ceallaigh receiving an Openet Innovators Stage Award.

There are some great photos from the CoderDojo Foundation available by clicking here.

We particularly like this photo of CoderDojo Founder James Whelton with Fionan

and this one of Lexi being awarded her prize onstage 🙂

We have a lot of photos from the day and hope to get these uploaded as soon as we deal with a little technical issue!
