This week, we were thrilled to launch a
new partnership with the Scouts in the UK. The new Digital Maker Staged Activity Badge will help tens of thousands of young people learn skills for life. Lots of people in our community are also involved with scouting organisations around the world, and the online materials to support the badge are available to everyone.
We also announced that we are curating this year’s
Education Summit at PyCon UK, and enjoyed two hanging plotter builds, heard about the first Raspberry Jam in the capital of Cameroon, and found gardening projects, arty projects, whimsical projects, and solid useful sensible projects. Issue 7 of HackSpace magazine is out this week too.
In next week’s newsletter, read about yesterday’s utterly brilliant
Coolest Projects International – but we need a little rest first.
In the meantime, have a great week.
