"After attending Picademy Irvine in 2017, I immediately went home and began
reaching out to other Raspberry Pi Certified Educators and my school
district to see how we could collaborate. We decided to organise a
Raspberry Jam during the Big Birthday Weekend 2018
With the help of volunteers, fellow RCEs, the county office, and my
district, we were able to host the Riverside Jam for over 150 families. We
had a student showcase, multiple workshops, and a Raspberry Pi photo booth."

"Due to this overwhelming success, my school district made the commitment
to bring physical computing to our schools. Through grant funding we
purchased 50 Raspberry Pi kits that we are currently using in our Pi-oneer
Program. Pi-oneer teachers are helping shape the future of computer science
and Raspberry Pi in our district. It’s so exciting to be able to share my
learning with others and get physical computing into the hands of students!"
