The fact that it was outdoors was less of a worry for the parents also. Also great to see activity and learning mixed. Great combination
She looked forward all week to the water fight!
We Keep up the good work. We have done physical and online camps with Designer Minds and my daughter has always enjoyed them.
Happy going and happy coming home
Thanks so much
He really liked his teacher at the camp.
Thanks for putting on an educational and enjoyable camp.
Daniel loved it from day 1. He was eager to go every single day and looked forward to it. It was fun, imaginative and learning without realising it.
Daniel has been to other summer camps but it was a task to get him to go everyday but not at designer minds.
We will definitely be booking for next year. Great camps.
He will definitely be back next year!
I would highly recommend Designer Minds Camp.
Projects like "banana DNA" or "growing bacteria" woke up her scientific side. She plans to explore that field further. Thank you for interesting classes. Best of luck in the future.
I would highly recommend designer minds camp and after school activities.
Fun stimulation for the brain on a summer holiday thats generally only packed with sports camps so a welcomed change ! Eagerly awaiting his return next year !
He was challenged in a fun way and was excited every morning to engage in new activities
Will definitely do it again
He has asked can he do the camp again next year.
Well done to all the staff. I’d highly recommend this camp. We’ll be back next summer!
So well run and well worth the money - we will back again next year!
They came out every day bursting to tell all about the really cool things they had done.
They are all set to go again next year.
Frank - Yes it was good, we did so many experiments and had fun.
Well done team.
Thanks for a great week
Thank you all so much, great friendly leaders/teachers we'll definitely see you all again next year.
Highly recommend Designer Minds.
Harry was so enthusiastic and excited to be learning every day. It was everything he enjoys all rolled into one week!! I am so glad to have been able to give him this experience!
Thanks to the Team
Every day was something different and he loved it all.
It has really increased his interest in science.
In Jack’s one words it was an amazing camp
I liked the Lego, the tablets, DNA from a banana.
Good kid to coach ratio
He can’t wait to go back next year!
Thank you for a great experience .
He loved the range of experiments and activities and how the group leaders engaged with him.
Really looking forward to doing the camp again.
We look forward to joining in again next year.
Thank you for a great week and for making science so much fun!!
In all of the years that they have attended different summer camps this is the first time that they insisted that I sign them back up for the next summer. They both enjoyed every day & are wearing their T-Shirts with pride.
roll-a-coster, to mention just a few of the things that they did. The staff were great and interacted very well with the children. If I was to pick something to complain about it would only be that there is no classes throughout the year close enough to attend so we will be waiting for next summers camp.
We came from Italy to attend your Camp and we return to Italy looking forward to coming back next year for the next one! Thanks for everything, to the very kind and good teachers, and to the availability of the organization. Congratulations on everything!
He had an amazing time and we will be looking at your weekly classes asap so he can join one of those. He is already looking forward to next summers camp. Thank you.
Róisín aged 13
There seemed to be a nice variety of activities and plenty to keep children going each day so the time flew by.
Loved the t-shirt!
He said he learned more there than he ever does in school & remembers it because it's fun.
Thanks for keeping him entertained!
A great way to get the brains working during the holiday months.
'I love camp,' I hear him say to himself in the car.
He is a keen and enthusiastic little learner and I am delighted that he has found something that stimulates his desire to learn.
He found instructors very help and also very patient
Every day brought new challenges and he did say it was the most enjoyable and educational summer camp he went to over the past few years
He would like to attend after school classes for designer minds unfortunately you don’t have any available in mallow
"Undescribable in a good way!"
Continued success to your team.
Thoroughly inspirational and stimulating. He tells me now he wants to be an Engineer when he grows up.
He ran in every morning and came out with a smile, once camp ended every day. Thank you so much to everyone involved for all your great work with the kids. He had a blast & will be back.
The camp was excellently run & the teachers were so nice and interested in all the kids.
I would highly recommend this camp to anyone, Michael wants to book in for next year!
My son, aged 11 just did this camp and he absolutely loved it. It was great to find a camp for his age that was not totally sports based. They did everyrhing from coding to making slime and he enjoyed it all. Great to find STEAM activities for kids to show them how much fun they can be and how accessible they are. Would highly recommend this camp and my son will be back next year.
More and more fun everyday!
My daughter can't wait to return next year.
Nicole was great with all the kids.
Something new every day was the key to success. Definitely see you again next year. Thank you.
Definitely will go back next year
Thanks to staff
Would like to go again next year
He is still wearing his T-shirt that he made on Friday.
Designer Minds is a great option for kids like mine who are more science orientated rather than sports!
Pity there are no weekly classes locally as there are in other parts of the country.
Thank you for encouraging and nurturing my son over the last week. Will definitely be back.
His Favorite activity was Light-bot Junior and Painting his very own T-shirt .
Highly Recommend This Camp
I have signed them up for the club because they enjoyed the camp so much.
Hands on, practical learning through fun, there was a great mix of activities including; coding, minecraft, robots, designing t-shirts, science ... all sorts that really engaged him.
The staff were superb, so friendly and engaging. I felt my child was in safe hands. A great experience, hoping to book in my 2nd child with her next year.
If these are what you want in a summer activity camp.
interesting subjects learned a lot.
My daughter especially enjoyed the Rasberry Pi and the rockets.
Personally I believe that paying for education is like investment.
I also met Méabh.
She'll be back next year thanks!
We couldn't choose a better after school activity for him
It really brought out her confidence and she loved the different challenges every week, so much so that she can't wait to go again, thanks to everyone at Designer Minds.
He asked to be signed up to the next term and is really looking forward to it. I would highly recommend it.
How to build things, how they work, to the point of learning how by carrying out his own projects at home. I have booked him in again. His increasing knowledge to figure out all these things is a great interest and fascination for him.
Thanks so much! He cannot wait for next term!
The classes are interesting, varied and challenging enough for her age. There is a strong emphasis on group and pair work, so as well as developing scientific skills , there is also a focus on social skills. It is a fantastic class and the weekly notes are excellent to get them prepared for the class ahead.
A lot of thought put into for each class
My son absolutely loved it.
I think the classes are bit short ,but well worth it!!!!
Science, Technology, maths and a much broader
range of subjects. The tutors show great enthusiasm
And my son loves going. Best of all , it’s learning through FUN!
Variety and can’t wait for the next term to start!
From my experience over the past few months the coursework seems to be engaging and educational while being fun. His favourite was Maths with Minecraft.
Sienna gained confidence week by week
She lived for Friday
Designer minds have opened her mind to a whole new world
She is so looking forward to the next session
Thank you SO much
2018 and come out of each class all excited to tell
Us what they’ve done in class.
It was the highlight of his week.
She would love to join the next level to learn more and explore her abilities

He would often shy away from groups but his confidence grew more with each class and I only wish he could have kept in touch with his new friends after the term ended - hopefully he will see some of them again next term.
Great work Donal & Team!
My daughter loved it from start to finish and can't wait until next term. I would recommend this club to anyone
Thank you for your great job!
Them for their future.
My daughter can struggle with engaging in many settings, and I really appreciate how accomodating staff were of her needs. She is unsure if she will return, but I feel that is due to her own personal struggles rather than the club itself. Big thank you for all she has learned so far :)
They felt that there was not a lot of support to help use the materials provided, and that some (usually the same, and younger) kids would recieve more help, or have their questions answered on a more consistent basis.
They also commented that they were not believed when they had a problem (eg missing piece, something not working).
This is completely understandable with there being two staff members for such a diverse age range, and covering subjects that kids are more than likely unfamiliar with. Perhaps having more adults who are familiar with the tech availiable would allow children to get more from the opportunities presented.
Also, it would be great to see a club that is in the Northside (Neptune is great!), or in the city.
Thanks for providing so many opportunities for exploration, we love Designer Minds :)
My daughters attend the same group, sit together and work together Designer minds has shown them the importance and value of team work when they work together to complete a project, they have to do it together.
Prior to designer minds, like any siblings, they would argue a lot however it’s now entertaining to listen when they are at home playing a game or making something,each one wants to be the boss but they have developed skills such as compromising and there is also some logical reasoning when trying to work out a solution. Designer minds is a very positive experience for my girls and they love attending the Ennis class each week the mentors there are fantastic, friendly and make topics interesting for the kids.
job @DesignerMinds team!
I do recommend it to anyone who is looking for weekend clubs
It was his first term with Designer Minds and is looking forward to the next.
Talking about the rollercoaster class.
I'd highly recommend them to any parent looking for a campo for children with the intereste in the topics they cover. All the ,material covered is instructed using relevant items that the kids are interested in
It's engaging, educational and thought provoking.
The teachers are brilliant with the children and very patient.
He is already looking forward to continuing next term.
It's learning through play and interaction. Fabulous teachers
Worth the price paid in 100%
Thank you ?
Thank you at the two great teachers.
Well done and thank you
Can't recommend highly enough
It is the first zoom class that she has stuck with and enjoyed. She made new friends and learned so much she is very proud of what she created. The teacher was great fun and really got the kids attention. I would highly recommend Designer Minds
Thanks to the whole team at Designer Minds..Already looking forward to the next course
