Hi Folks,

A quick heads up: today we're announcing the fourth annual PyCon UK
education track today. Details can be here:

Are you a teacher? Do you know any teachers..? Teacher's continuing
professional development day is on Friday 18th September. Thanks to the
generous sponsorship of Bank of America (again) it only costs £50 for a
teacher's conference ticket (not including conference meal).

Can't get time off school? Not a problem - we (literally) have you
covered: we have £200 bursaries for schools who send teachers so they
can recover the cost of a supply teacher. We'll provide details for how
to obtain the bursary when you attend the conference.

Who's taking part? The Raspberry Pi Foundation education team, Jam
Packed, teaching colleagues and professional Python programmers will all
be contributing workshops. You'll also get a chance to mix and
collaborate with the wider conference attended by the UK's most talented
Python developers.

The kids' day will be on Saturday 19th September. We aim to run various
workshops aimed at young beginner Pythonistas throughout the day. These
will include web design, robotics, Minecraft and physical computing. Our
aim is to turn excited kids into exhausted but inspired
proto-programmers. :-)

The cost is only £5 per child and parents/guardians get in for free.
Lunch will be provided. You only need to bring an open mind and a sense
of adventure!

Spread the word, tell your friends and book tickets here:

I'm always happy to answer any questions you may have!

Best wishes,

Nicholas.
