Support the Raspberry Pi Faculty Workshop
At Kennesaw State University's College of Computing and Software Engineering, we believe
that today's students should learn to understand and create computing technology, not just be consumers of technology. One of the things we do is teach teachers how
their students can create with computing technology in a series of Raspberry Pi Teacher
Workshops, offered to area K-12 teachers free of charge. The teachers take home a Raspberry Pi, a single-board computer a little larger than a credit card, and the other equipment they will need to develop lessons for their classrooms.
By the end of the summer 2019, nearly 150 K-12 teachers had attended a workshop. Together, these teachers reach over 40,000 students every year.
Although teachers attend free, expenses are about $250 for each one. These workshops are funded entirely by individual gifts and grants; there is no tax money appropriated for the workshops. So, we rely on support from people like you. You can support one teacher for $250, five teachers for $1,250, or ten teachers for $2,500. A gift of $25,000 will let us train 100 more teachers and reach 30,000 more students.
If you want to support these workshops, you can donate online. In "Gift Designation," choose "K-12 STEM Outreach." If you prefer to contribute by check, make your check payable to the Kennesaw State University Foundation, write “Fund number 310267K12TCH” in the memo area, and send it to Bob Brown, Kennesaw State University, Mail Stop 9036, 1100 South Marietta Parkway, Marietta GA 30060. In either case, please also let Bob know by email: Bob.Brown@Kennesaw.edu because some gifts will qualify for matching.
The KSU Foundation is a Section 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and your gift is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.Please Donate
