being a bit of a numbskull here, but just confirming that ninja’s register their projects on: https://dublin.coolestprojects.org/#!/register
Parents/mentors instead register for tickets here: https://ti.to/coderdojo-coolest-projects/coderdojo-coolest-projects-2017
Just the confusion arose from two points:
Also, are mentors allowed in for the final awards ceremony?
@KramKroc Hi Mark, sorry for the delay getting back to you. Yes you are totally correct; ninjas register their projects via the link you noted above, and parents, mentors and children who are attending but not entering a project can get their tickets via the ti.to link you have mentioned above.
Last year I know it was just the children who were present for the awards ceremony, with volunteers supervising and the ceremony being screened live to parents and attendees in the next room. I will check what the plan is regarding mentors attending the ceremony and let you know tomorrow 😊
@KramKroc regarding your question with mentors and parents being on the register form, this is because a lot of parents and mentors register projects on behalf of either their children or youths from their Dojo. For U13 I believe we ask for contact details of parents/guardians to be included when an U13 registers. And both adults and youths are sent the same email with details on the event.
Just to clarify parents/mentors can register projects on behalf of youths but need to book their own attendance ticket via the ti.to link you noted.
I hope that I clarified what you were asking about, but let me know if there is any other questions you have. 😊
@Nuala-Nic-Éil It totally clarifies it but it could be clearer on the registration page (but I guess with over 600 attendees last year, it’s just me that found it confusing :D)
Looks like your connection to CoderDojo Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
