Projects for Teachers

Our projects all start from teacher suggestions — they're by teachers, made for teachers. We offer two types of projects: teacher projects and student projects.

Teacher projects are designed to enhance an existing lesson. These projects are ready to use or require only minimal setup. There's no computer programming required. The purpose here is to get students more involved in your existing curriculum. Consider these ideas for supplemental curriculum:

  • Studying irrigation? Add a water flow project to monitor water flow in real time.
  • Building a garden? Add a soil moisture project to increase water conservation.
  • Studying the weather? Add a weather station project to capture temperature, humidity and other metrics.
  • Studying electricity? Create an LED light display with resistors.

Have other lessons you'd like to enhance? Please contact us for ways to make it happen. We offer Raspberry Pi teacher primer sessions as well, to give teachers a jump start.

You can watch our Meet the Raspberry Pi video lesson and read the supplementary online material (it prints out nicely too). Just email us from your official educational institution email telling us a little about your role helping kids learn, and we'll send over a free temporary login.

Projects for Students

Student projects are just like the teacher projects described above, but they take learning a step further. Teacher projects come completed (or nearly completed).

A student project is a teacher project once it's completed. This way students get involved connecting, coding, troubleshooting and learning from their mistakes. These projects are based on time requirements: short, medium, and long. They are straightforward and explained in a simple and conversational style, but the students are doing the work and the teachers are acting as guides. We provide an element of training required for teachers as they will need to be familiar with each project's components.

We think your kids will eat it up. :)
