Picademy USA

In the summer of 2015, President Obama made call to action to create a Nation of Makers within the United States. We made a commitment in response to that call: we would train 100 teachers in digital making with Raspberry Pi in 2016. We’re proud to say that we’ve fulfilled that commitment.

Hosted by institutions such as the Computer History Museum, the Digital Harbor Foundation, and the Texas Advanced Computing Center, the Raspberry Pi Foundation is delighted to bring this professional development program to the United States. Over the course of two days, 40 teachers get hands-on with digital making and discover the many ways the Raspberry Pi can be used in the classroom. No experience is necessary: the Foundation’s Education Team helps teachers discover practical ways in which Raspberry Pi can support and further their use of technology. At the end of the two days, attendees are pronounced Raspberry Pi Certified Educators and join an active network of teachers from around the world.
