Educational Resources from RaspberryPi.org @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
The Hour of Code has had tremendous success across the UK and the US at bringing code into the classroom. In the same spirit as the Hour of Code, RaspberryPi.org has released a set of pi resources as a preview to their new educational site that will launch at the end of March:
Welcome to the Hour of Code! Whether you’re a teacher or a parent; young or old; or just curious to find out what all the fuss is about: just have a go! And if you have any great stories please let us know. We’d especially love to hear from you if you won one of the Google Raspberry Pis in the competition recently. Above all have fun, try something new and make some cool stuff!
And if you’d like to try some Raspberry Pi based activities as part of the Hour of Code week here’s as small taster of the teaching and learning materials that we’re writing and collating for our new website (launching end of March) Enjoy 🙂
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
