The main focus is for this meeting is to discover how the Raspberry Pi may be used in schools to inspire and enthuse pupils in computing. We are planning a series of events for teachers and families all associated with the Raspberry Pi, Scratch & Python.

Come along to the meeting if you want to discover if it is for you, to meet other interested teachers, discover different ways of teaching computing or maybe you are just curious.

At 6.30pm we will be asking you to contribute to planning a giant Raspberry Jam event to take place on April 13th. We want to encourage you to bring children and families from your schools to our Jam on the 13th April.  We would encourage you to stay, but if you need to, you may choose to leave at 6.30pm

Organizer

Computing At School (CAS)

The Computing At School group (CAS) aims to promote the teaching of Computing at school. CAS was born out of our excitement with our discipline, combined with a serious concern that many students are being “turned off” computing by a combination of factors that have conspired to make the subject seem dull and pedestrian. Our goal is to put the excitement back into Computing at school. 

The Computing At School  group (CAS) is a grass roots organisation, whose energy, creativity, and leadership comes from its members. CAS is a collaborative partner with the BCS through the BCS Academy of Computing, and has formal support from other industry partners. Membership is open to everyone, and is very broad, including teachers, parents, governors, exam boards, industry, professional societies, and universities. We speak for the discipline of computing at school level, inc.  FE, and not for any particular interest group.
