The Foundation will be expanding their Picademies to a select a number of new cities next year. They are looking for cities/regions with a core group of interested educators. To help promote Mississippi as a good location for the FREE Picademy, an interest survey has been created for educators. Please respond to the survey if you would be interested in participating in this free PD workshop (most likely to be held in the Jackson area).

 

Are you interested in FREE training in coding and digital making with Raspberry Pi computers? 

With your support, Mississippi could be included in the next wave of new Picademy cities! A Picademy is a free two-day PD workshop for educators (including teachers, librarians, after-school club leaders, museum staff, etc.).  All participants receive a Raspberry Pi, which is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into a TV and keyboard.  They are very inexpensive ($35 and under) computers that can be used for coding and digital making (electronics projects), wearable tech,  etc.).

Mississippi LIGHT Collaborative & Kids Code are excited to have the possible opportunity to bring Picademy to Mississippi & to support & grow Maker, Tech & S.T.E.A.M. learning.
