Skycademy 2016 announced – Raspberry Pi high altitude ballooning CPD

James Robinson has just announced that this year’s Skycademy will take place on Monday 8th to Wednesday 10th August.

Skycademy is a FREE two-and-a-half day Continuing Professional Development (CPD) event aiming to provide experience of high altitude ballooning to educators, and demonstrate how it can be used as an engaging teaching tool.

The training includes tuition on the theory and practice of launching high altitude balloon flights and an opportunity to launch an actual flight in teams.

The aim is for each Picademy participant to eventually launch their own flight and, to this end, Skycademy attendees will receive support & equipment to help facilitate this over the following 12 months.
