Simon

Ben loved this course . He had a little bit of experience using scratch as he had done some of the tutorials on the scratch website , however he still learned a lot and he can’t wait to do scratch 2. It was a great way to show my son how online games irk instead of just playing them. He met others as well and learned to talk about his ideas to others in a group session.
Louise

Izzy really loved the new experience of the Coding course online. It was her own thing and it so great to see what she was able to learn after each class.

Our son recently completed scratch level 2 and really enjoyed it and for the first time ever worked at it on his own in between classes which is a big sign of what a great motivational and inspiring course it was. Big thanks to his teacher Niamh, we are hoping that Designer Minds will consider running a scratch Level 3 as the spark has well and truly been lit with levels 1 & 2 & it would be great to expand on it.
Catherine

My daughter Serena really enjoyed her Roblox course. She was very proud that by the end of the 4 days she’d made her own game, played it and launched it live. Gave her great confidence.
Elaine

Very good set up, my son really enjoyed it.
Maeve

Chloe really enjoyed this course and would definitely love to partake in another in the future
Yvonne

The Scratch Coding 1 and 2 camps during the Easter holidays were a wonderful opportunity for my son, Will, to learn in a fun and interesting way. Niamh ran the webinars in a tightly structured and productive way that allowed her young learners to confidently follow the programme as well as have fun and be creative. Will can't wait for the next opportunity. Thank you Designer Minds!
Roisin

The online class was a great way for my child to have fun interaction with other children while in-person camps are not available. The course leader had great content and made sure all children were heard.

My son thoroughly enjoyed this online Desingerminds course. The instructor showed great patience and made it easy for my son to follow along and get a sense of achievement. He loved showing me what he learned during class and was looking forward to a new class every week. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in Scratch.

Michelle

Nicely organised , interactive and kids really loves new things they learn.
Olesia

Sean absolutely loved his engineering course. He was up ready to go early every Saturday morning all excited. The experiments usually continued through out the day between himself and his brothers. They didn’t realise that they were learning as they went which was brilliant!
Orlaith

We got to build things that we chose, and look at others builds as well.
Sean 8

Eric impressed himself being able to do stuff on the computer

Abbie loved her week with Niamh, so much so we signed her up to do the 5week term after Easter.
Amanda

I really enjoyed it because I never did game designing before and it was a great start for me..
Kristion

Our son loved the Lego Masters club! We live overseas so it was great for him to take part in a course with Irish kids. From saying very little on the first week, our son blossomed and chatted lots in the last week. The leader did a great job in including all the kids, helping them to explore their ideas, and giving them tips on presenting what they had built. We will definitely be back for another course!
Susannah

Maya enjoyed this course so much! I really really hope there will be a second course like that.
Sabine

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Engineers to the Rescue’ course. She learned lots through the activities and was excited to attend each week. She loved it so much that we booked another course before she had even finished the first.
Catherine

My girls felt they were learning but still having fun.This meant a lot when it was on zoom.
Ashling

My son took part in the Lego stop motion, online camp. He really enjoyed it. He learned so much every week. He was making some great stop motion shows and even taught his sister how to do a few. Would highly recommend this camp as it’s great for a child’s creativity and also anyone who has a love of Lego.
GERALDINE

David was a fantastic instructor and very good with the kids. My daughter really enjoyed this course.

My son(age 10) completed the Introduction to Scratch course 1 online and really enjoyed the experience. His teacher David was very patient and competent and able to assist children at all levels at the same time. We will definitely be booking again!
Catherine

What a fantastic course. Very well run and my daughter loved it. Even having to set an alarm on Saturday mornings! She loved letting her friends play the game she developed and she can't wait to do the level 2 course.

Can't recommend highly enough
Eamonn G

My daughter loved the introduction to coding class so much
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 so much we really enjoyed it... The teacher was great, so lovely and kind, patient and was able to help and guide them so well. Jack really enjoyed the challenges and worked hard on his lego during the week in order to be ready for Friday afternoon. Massive thanks again x
Norah

Zach had an amazing time at the Lego Masters. It provided a wonderful space for him to quietly be creative and it's such an empowering thing for kids to tell each other how good they are doing. The leader was absolutely amazing - she was patient, kind and generally fantastic.
Zach

Excellent sessions so engaging. Thanks so much to all at DM especially Michael for all his support during the Roblox course. My girl is excited to about the follow up course already.

Rachael

My son loved the introduction to coding course with scratch. It was his first time taking part in a designer minds course but I will definitely be signing him up for more. The online course was well structured and interesting. The course leader was great at getting the kids to interact even though it was online.

The course was engaging, fun and interactive. A must for any child with an interest in improving their technology skills.

Harry really enjoyed the club. The class was great fun, he was in a group of lovely friendly children. He enjoyed learning every week and the games and interaction. Time given to each child to ensure they were comfortable with what they had learnt and the teacher was patient and friendly. He can’t wait to sign up for another course and has everything crossed that summer camps will go ahead this year!





Sharon

My daughter had a fantastic experience with this course. She found it very enjoyable and sociable while learning to code.
Caroline

My son has joined and completed various courses in the STEM theme but this was the only once he was enthusiastic and excited about. The instructor was very clear and very involved vocally during each session and there was just enough to give sense of a small gang building lego together . Would not hesitate to recommend or join again.
Fiona

Super course for Roblox fans and those who enjoy gaming in general. My son did the course over 5 consecutive days during lockdown and was totally immersed and excited by it. He was clock-watching for the course to begin each day and as the week went on, he had learned so much about creating his own game that he was at it first thing in the morning (expanding & refining it). The course leader was knowledgeable, patient & encouraged the children to have fun whilst still ensuring they stayed focused on the job at hand. It was very interactive and engaging. Simple to access over Zoom. Highly recommended
Marguerite

Daniel really enjoyed the course and learned a lot about scratch programming. He is keen to continue to learn more. I’m happy that he has learned a new skill especially during the lockdown period.
Ciaran

Frank loved the course 1 and he asked me to book the following course straight away! I'm delighted he enjoyed it so much :)
Jisuk

The learning experience was excellent. They covered lots of material but in a fun and relaxed way. It was great to see her socialising and making new friends.
Ruth

My daughter would get immersed in the activities every week and was very proud of what she produced. Very well run, and lots of fun.
Marek

My son was so looking forward to the course. We( parents) were a bit slow to get all organised for the course but once he figured it out, he loved it!!!
Thanks to the whole team at Designer Minds..Already looking forward to the next course
Mihaela

My son LOVED this course. I was a bit skeptical about how it would work for children online learning. I needn’t have worried. Small group, super teacher and engaged children. All boxes ticked.
Orla

My son loved his Designer Minds online course. In his words it was well paced & you had time to do the tasks. He liked the sharing element of the course and felt he could get inspiration from the other club goer. His teacher explained everything really well and all instructions were easy to follow. He enjoyed making his Lego movie and “shorts”. Thank you.
Denise

The course was outstanding. It's very cleverly put together having a story behind every week that joins up each week. Louise is an ideal instructor, so kind & calm while also being fun and getting the participants to enjoy the interaction.
Chrstine

My son thoroughly enjoyed the club and can't wait for the next one.
Nicola

The weekly online club was something my son looked forward to every week. He was really engaged and enjoyed all building, he made sure we had all the supplies ready in advance each week.
Siobhan

I thought it was great because you get to meet people with the same thoughts and likes as you. And you can meet some nice people and try out different engineering projects. I like the experiments we did.
Liam

Conor, really enjoyed the online club. He looked forward to the weekly session, making sure he had all the materials required himself. The facilitator was engaging, encouraging and had a friendly easy manner. Thank you.

A brilliant club that really allowed my child to have great interactions with other kids, while also keeping safe during COVID lockdown. Really enthusiastic leader and great weekly challenges.
Ronan

She really enjoyed the course and the team leader was excellent very patient and involved all the children
Catriona

My son thoroughly enjoyed online game design course with Designers Minds and is eager to do the follow up to this. The instructor was excellent interacting with him and met him were he was at and then challenged. The Monday to Friday really suited him and he enjoyed doing this every day and really looked forward to it. It also provided him with some structure to his day given the current Climate! 10/10
Sinéad

My son absolutely loved the class and looked forward to it every week.
Helen

The Designer Minds Roblox classes have been the highlight of Josh’s week from day one! It’s so good to hear him talking animatedly with like minded kids. He’s also learned loads and has taken a huge amount of pride in being able to create his own worlds. We’ve already signed up for the next classes.
Melanie

Oisin really enjoyed the course and found his instructor very helpful and his fellow class mates good fun.
Jennifer

Michael really connected with the kids. My son is usually very shy but he enjoyed this club immensely although he didn’t know anybody. Michael was patient with the kids and explained the topic very effectively. Fintan will be back for more.
Anja

Connor absolutely loved this course, it was the highlight of he week and the perfect tonic to the monotony of lockdown.
Theresa

My son thoroughly enjoyed this class and he learned so much over the course of the five weeks. Michael was so patient and explained everything very well. The small class sizes meant that every child could contribute to the class and share their questions and results with each other. I highly recommend this class to other kids interested in coding!
Jules

James loved the Scratch Introduction Course with Michael. He learned lots of tips and tricks, how to create lots of fun animations and how to troubleshoot the code.
Rachel

Having attended Designer Minds summer camps before, I expected my son to enjoy this but he absolutely loved it and can't wait for the next course to start. With so little to look forward to or to structure kids' time at the moment, I can't recommend this enough. The highlight of his week. As a parent I am so happy that screen time can be educational as well as something he really enjoys!
Rosanna

Aaron Kennedy loved the Introduction to Coding with Scratch. The instructor was brilliant with the kids and so supportive when they got stuck on certain things. Would highly recommend it.

My son liked that the information was easy to understand and his tutor was helpful. He’s looking forward to the next set of classes.
Niamh

My son thought the course was brilliant. He couldn’t wait every week to do it and was Absolutley buzzing after every one. Thanks to the great Designer Minds Team.

Very well run, organised and thought out program. My 8 year old was captivated from start to finish every day, loved every second of it and is already eyeing up his next online designer minds program
