We are on the precipice of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, characterised by artificial intelligence, automation, self-driving vehicles, ubiquitous mobile super-computing and so forth. These advances will create new and unexpected employment opportunities as well as new pressures caused by technological unemployment.
We know that present and future generations will face unprecedented challenges in the form of climate change, population growth, antibiotic resistance and an ageing population.
The vital question we must ask is this: how can we equip our children with the knowledge and skills to thrive in a transforming world? Come to pi-topCORNER (stand G480 in STEAM village) to find out.
Register quickly if you want to join pi-top’s education team at stand G480 in STEAM village for a genuinely fun and enlightening workshop in a hands-on collaborative classroom setting.
The pi-top workshops will focus on solving problems together, applying knowledge and encouraging learners to discuss with others what will work best. We will explore a whole new chapter of computer science, STEAM education and learning by making.
Get involved! And get making, innovating and creating with pi-top’s modular products. Learn how to code in Python and do some real-life physical computing. Build your own circuit with lights, buzzers, sensors and motors and learn how pi-top can facilitate a meaningful learning environment for both students and teachers, addressing curriculum requirements through project-based learning.
Each pi-top workshop will last between 30 and 45 minutes. You will leave with a thorough understanding of how pi-top can help your school to fully embrace and benefit from our learning by making philosophy. We hope you come join us!
