Comic Creator The Comic Creator invites students to compose their own comic strips for a variety of contexts (prewriting, pre- and postreading activities, response to literature, and so on). The organizers focus on the key elements of comic strips by allowing students to choose backgrounds, characters, and props, as well as to compose related dialogue (shown at left). This versatile tool can be used by students from kindergarten through high school, for purposes ranging from learning to write dialogue to an in-depth study of a formerly neglected genre.
Recommendations for Practical Analog Electronics Books Perhaps the easiest introductions to electronics that you can find is the free e-book Lessons In Electric Circuits (allaboutcircuits) by Kuphaldt. It assumes no prior knowledge of electronics, physics or mathematics and explains everything in a very gentle way. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are new to electronics and you want to build your own circuits (or modify or just take measurements in circuits that others have built), you should first familiarize yourself with the basic safety measures. A very good introduction to such measures is the chapter Electrical Safety in Kuphaldt's book. I strongly recommend that you study it very carefully before you start working. If you prefer videos, you can find a nice introduction to electronics in the Video Lectures by Fiegenbaum.

Skycademy - Free High Altitude CPD We’re looking for 24 teachers (or youth leaders) to take part in a FREE two-and-a-half day Continuing Professional Development (CPD) event aiming to provide experience of high altitude ballooning to educators, and demonstrating how it can be used as an engaging teaching opportunity. Over the last few year I’ve seen many awesome uses of the Raspberry Pi, but one of my favourites by far is seeing the Pi used as a payload tracker for High Altitude Ballooning (HAB) projects. One of the most prolific HAB enthusiasts is Dave Akerman, who has launched many flights using the Raspberry Pi, from the first flight back in 2012… …to the launch of a potato for Heston Blumenthal’s “Great British Food”… …and even capturing some amazing images of the recent Solar Eclipse from 30km up.
