Professional Development Courses

Our professional development courses are a hands-on, immersive experience with microcontrollers, robotics, sensors, and programming. We produce customizable curriculum, teacher’s guides, and all the resources needed for a teacher to use our hardware in their courses.  You will leave with a better understanding of how to adapt our materials to your learning environment.

Discussion includes tips and strategies for implementation in a variety of educational settings.  We employ a project-based learning style that has real-life application. Whatever your particular course emphasis, we can help you equip your students for a level of technology literacy that will serve them well in any future field of study.
