Educator Workshop: Taking a Website to the Next Level (Level 2)

Once students feel comfortable with the basics of HTML and CSS, they often find that their website still doesn’t look as professional and isn't as interactive as they'd like. This workshop is geared toward teachers with a good grasp of HTML and CSS, and are ready to learn slightly more advanced concepts of CSS and JavaScript to better support their students. JavaScript is one of the fastest growing computer languages and adds a level of interactivity to websites. 

This workshop is ideal for those teaching through our Novice Web Dev track-- this is the 2nd workshop for this track.

Educator Workshop: Building Projects with Raspberry Pi (Level 2)

Now that you understand the basics of Raspberry Pi microcomputers... what's next? How to you encourage students to build electronics with the Pi? 

This workshop is geared toward teachers that have some experience in Raspberry Pi, but don’t quite know where to start when embarking on their own Raspberry Pi project. We will go through the Engineering Design Process, showing how Raspberry Pi projects are cyclical and require some trial and error. The goal of this workshop is to equip teachers to engage with Raspberry Pi projects they see online, understand which ones are and are not possible in their classroom, and walk them through tools and techniques that are commonly used in Raspberry Pi projects. This will include demonstrating how to utilize open source libraries (pre written Python code), controlling motors, recognizing and reverse engineering popular equipment (including Sense HATs, Motor Drivers, external batteries, etc), and safely providing power to all your equipment. This workshop is ideal for those in our Hardware Development track.
