Lights, Camera, Pi!

SET-BC who graciously gave us our grant to do our insPIre Project came to video all the amazing insPIration happening in our PI class. The students were great at being in front of the camera and showing that they're all excited about coding! Thanks to Flo and Gary for allowing us to share our excitement about PI. We are looking forward to seeing the edited version in May.

Pi Presentation

I have done four Pi workshops since we started our insPIre project… It's been great sharing all the exciting things we have been doing! Here's one of my presentations to share a 'snapshot' of our ins-PI-re Project.

ins-PI-ring Workshop

The workshop of ins-PI-ring Technology: Raspberry Pi went excitingly well! There was a full class of educators from teachers to Tech support to a Special Education Assistant. I believe everyone left ins-PI-red!

Here are some photos from the day:

There is a wonderful article in Forbes about the importance of teaching young people to learn how to code and channelling their creativity to make their own video games. Click on the link below to read all about:
