Calliope mini / Education, Technology, Digital

We want to give children a playful approach to the digital world! We want to reach kids from around third grade. Why? We hope for better educated school leavers, but also more critical and more confident users of new technologies who have gained enthusiasm for the possibilities but also knowledge on the the threats. So we focus on tinkering with our own microcontroller, the Calliope mini. All our material (hardware, software and accompanying material) is published under the OER-friendly CC-BY-SA license, so it is easy to use for teaching personnel in their classes.
