American Educators May Request Parallax Hardware for their K-12 Programs
Parallax’s educational partner CYBER.ORG made a tremendous announcement today for technology education programs in the United States. They launched a program inviting teachers to apply and receive hardware for use with their CYBER.ORG curriculum materials. In the application, you may choose from several popular Parallax educational robots!
Cyber.org announced “We know that one of the biggest challenges for teachers is supplying your classroom. That’s why we’re opening our Technology Grant Program! We encourage K-12 teachers to apply for technology kits that include Boe-Bots, cyber:bots, Shield-bots, micro:bits, US Cyber Range Licenses, Raspberry Pi’s, and Science+ classroom kits. Apply here for technology for your classroom! https://cyber.org/technologygrant“
Our positive experience with Cyber.org indicates this will be a successful program. We’re clearly honored to be their partner in this meaningful educational effort!
We invite you to attend an informative presentation this afternoon from Jon McPhalen, the author, actor, coder and inventor. Jon will be sharing his programming tips for the Parallax Propeller 2. Jon is the creator of almost all of the Spin2 code objects in the Parallax GitHub and has over 30 years of experience developing products in the areas of laser tag, camera control, sprinkler control, animatronics, and entertainment. He’s well-respected among his peers for producing professional, tested, consistent code examples and a popular code template. If you’ve ever wanted to improve your programming capabilities, this is a Zoom meeting you won’t want to miss!
