On Wednesday, July 30 at 8:30 in the morning at the Educational Service District 123 Pasco, Washington there will be a two-day workshop where teachers will be teaming up with researchers from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to find out how to use the Raspberry Pi and then design a classroom lesson.
About the Event
Originally designed to help more people learn programming, the Raspberry Pi is a relatively inexpensive credit-card sized computer that plugs into a monitor, mouse and keyboard to serve as a capable little computer. You can even use it for electronics projects and desktop PC activities including spreadsheets and word-processing. The teams will use the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core State Standards to design a classroom lesson with the Raspberry Pi. PNNL researchers will work with teachers to implement the lesson with students in the fall of 2014.
All participants receive a Raspberry Pi unit and workshop materials to keep. Class sets of Raspberry Pi’s will be available to borrow for the student lessons. Space is limited. Please be guided that check-in begins at 8:30 am each day. In addition, lunch provided and there will be stipend and clock hours available for teachers.
For more information please visit the Educational Service District 123 located in 3918 W. Court St. Pasco, Washington.Posted by Colleen D. Lane on
