Picademy@Google Newcastle


Thanks to the generosity and support of our friends at Google, educators can apply for FREE Raspberry Pi Continued Professional Development (CPD), hosted by Google in cities around the UK, in conjunction with the Digital Garage programme. These events will be held at Newcastle City Library (see full address below).

Picademy@Google can be applied to by teachers of any subject at primary, secondary or post-16 level, as well as other educators who either work with children or educate student teachers. The Picademy@Google courses are run by a hand-picked group of our highly skilled community members and educators, and are a mix of hands-on making, project-based learning and general hacking.
