Lots of exciting things happening in Scotland soon!

First of all, we’ve finally got the first meeting of the CAS Edinburgh Hub organised. We will have a talk from Michael Walmsley, the creator of CodeAvengers. This is taking place on Tuesday 18th June, 5-7pm at Microsoft Edinburgh (Waverley Gate, the location of the CAS Scotland conference last year). Everyone welcome, please sign up for free at Eventbrite.

Also at Microsoft, we have organised a regular Innovative and Creative Technology in Education (ICTEd) group in Edinburgh. The first meeting is on Tuesday 25th June, 5-8pm. There meetings are aimed at all teachers not just Computing teachers, and anyone else in fact! In the opening session we will explore how technology can be used as a learning tool. A general overview of some of the most effective types of technology from podcasting and animation to web 2.0 and games-based learning. The event is free, please book through Meetup.  Please come along and bring a non-Computing teacher from your school!

Also in Edinburgh, Hacklab are running an Ardunio workshop at Summerhall on 22nd June, 11-5pm. No previous electronics or programming experience is required. More details and signup on their event page. There is likely to be a high demand for places so it’s worth booking as soon as you can. There is a cost but it can include an Arduino kit and it is very good value for money for a full day’s CPD.

In Glasgow, Maklab are running workshops on Blender, Arduino, Linux and Python/Raspberry Pi throughout this month. More details are on their web page. ¬†Hack labs like Edinburgh Hacklab and Glasgow’s Maklab are great places to share, learn and also use equipment such as 3D printers.
