Raspberry Pi Foundation launches new Picademy@Google initiative

The Foundation has just announced a new programme of Picademy training at a centre in Leeds. Picademy@Google will take place on the dates shown below at a pop-up space known as a “Digital Garage”:

  • 21st – 22nd May 2015
  • 8th – 9th June 2015
  • 8th – 9th July 2015
  • 4th – 5th August
  • 5th – 6th October

Run by hand-picked community members and educators, these two-day sessions will be “a mix of hands-on making, project-based learning and general hacking”.

You can find out more details here and apply for a space on the courses here.

This is a really fantastic initiative and could be the start of something incredible – a portable, two-day syllabus of CPD for teachers that can be put into different areas of the country making it accessible to a much wider range of educators.

  1. I’m an IT guy (since 1993) with a BA in Information Tech.
    I am interested in getting the information to teach the criteria for the Raspberry PI. How do I get it and/or who do I contact.
    I am in the Tampa Florida area.
    Please advise?


    • Hi Steve.
      I think the best thing to do is to put you in touch with the Foundation’s Education Team. If you can email me at mike@recantha.co.uk, I’ll send you the contact details for the best person.
