There is always a flurry of activity at the start of the new academic year, and we are getting in on the action: this autumn and winter, we’ll be launching four new online courses! They are completely free and aim to give educators a solid grounding in the concepts and practical applications of computing.
Electronics Weekly (blog) Astro Pi 2018 challenge prepares the Raspberry Pi for space Electronics Weekly (blog) Specifically, the European Astro Pi Challenge, to give it its full name, involves writing computer programs to run on the single board computer for experiments aboard the International Space Station. It is an ESA Education project run in collaboration …
Join us for an in-depth exploration of ethical computing in the newest issue of Hello World, our magazine for computing and digital making educators. It’s out today! We need to talk about ethics Whatever area of computing you hail from, how to take an ethical approach to the projects we build with code is an important question. As educators, we also need to think about the attitudes we are passing on to our students as we guide them along their computing journey.
Mu is a very simple-to-use Python editor and IDE (integrated development environment) and this week, version 1.0 was released! New Mu Mu is designed to be as user-friendly and as helpful as possible for new Python programmers, presenting just the tools that are useful, such as: Syntax highlighting Automatic indentation In-built help Code checking Debugging Great for new programmers Mu is intended to be not the only Python IDE you’ll ever need, but the first one — the editor that helps you start your coding journey, but not necessarily the one you finish it with. So when you’re ready, you will have the skills and confidence to move on to using a more advanced Python IDE.
In our latest resource, we show you how to create a website and use it to document your coding projects. Why document your code
The end of the academic year is here, and we are marking the occasion by celebrating teachers from all over the world. For those about to teach, we salute you. Since last September, we’ve run a whole host of programmes that teachers have been involved in
This week, the ten winning Astro Pi Mission Space Lab teams got to take part in a video conference with ESA Astronaut Tim Peake! ESA Astro Pi students meet Tim Peake Uploaded by Raspberry Pi on 2018-06-26. A brief history of Astro Pi In 2014, Raspberry Pi Foundation partnered with the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency to fly two Raspberry Pi computers to the International Space Station .
One of the most common enquiries I receive at Pi Towers is “How can I get my hands on a Raspberry Pi Oracle Weather Station?” Now the answer is: “Why not build your own version using our guide?” Tadaaaa! The BYO weather station fully assembled.
Earlier this spring, an excited group of STEM educators came together to participate in the first ever Raspberry Pi and Arduino workshop in Puerto Rico.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation loves to celebrate people who use technology to solve problems and express themselves creatively, so we’re proud to expand the incredibly successful event Coolest Projects to North America. This free event will be held on Sunday 23 September 2018 at the Discovery Cube Orange County in Santa Ana, California
