Picademy #4 application is up #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Educators in the Cambridge area should apply now for the Picademy #4 which is taking place September 1st and 2nd at Raspberry Pi’s offices. This is a free event to help educators bring Pis into their classrooms and should be super informative and fun. From Raspberrypi.org:
Over the course of two days, 24 teachers get hands-on with computing here at Pi Towers in Cambridge, and discover the many ways in which the Raspberry Pi can be used in the classroom. No experience is necessary; the Foundation’s Education team will help you discover practical ways in which Raspberry Pi can support and further your teaching of the new curriculum.
In the meantime, to learn more about using Raspberry Pi in your classroom we highly recommend the resources section of our new website. It contains project ideas, self guidance tutorials and whole schemes of work (all free!). We also suggest attending a Raspberry Jam event in your area – see the community section for more.
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.
