Raspberry Pi Workshops
CCSE offers several Raspberry Pi Teacher Workshops each year. Teachers complete a "guided experimentation" project with a Raspberry Pi, then design and complete a project of their own. Finally, they work with others to complete a group project of their own design. Workshop participants take away a teacher kit containing a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, case, power supply, and parts pack to use in their classrooms. The workshops are offered free of charge to qualified teachers.
