Any Questions? – Ask an educator! @adafruit

Greetings everyone! As I am trying to establish myself on the wonderful adafruit blog, I though I would offer the opportunity to everyone to ask me questions about using many of the tools found on the site in the classroom.

If you missed my intro post a couple of weeks ago, I have been teaching high school Technology Education for 7 years and have made it my goal to bring as much new technology into the classroom as possible. Currently I use my 3D printer, laser cutter, plasma cutter, Arduinos, and your standard “shop” equipment to teach a sort of applied physics courses I call Conventional and Alternative Energy Systems.

So if you have any questions about using tools like these in the classroom, need curriculum ideas, or just have questions about teaching, submit a response to the survey below and I will do my best to answer!
