Who is this for?
This is for our whole school to use in IT, and can be used for other subjects too.
Why do we want it?
There is a skills gap in the UK for STEM skills and technology skills. We're trying to encourage kids to engage in tech and to learn even the basic skills that are now required for the modern jobs market. We know that sitting in a classroom and copying out code and making things appear on screen can be quite dry, so we take the approach of tinkering and making to inspire the urge to learn about programming and electronics. We would like to teach programming using a variety of devices from the Raspberry Pi to the BBC Microbit, using fun projects and things that kid can physically see working to help them feel that they are actually learning something.
By raising money, we will be able to get enough equipment to teach more kids how to program in new and exciting ways.
