Our professional development offerings are designed to make it as easy as possible to bring electronics and computational thinking to the classroom. From our premier, week long course introducing a variety of electronics to one day workshops on specific products to custom consulting, we offer the trainings you need.
Take a look below at our professional development options.
FIVE Day, Public Workshop
Microcontrollers for Educators
Implementing Computer Science in the Classroom
Our flagship workshop series, these five-day classes are designed to provide educators (middle school and up) a foundation in electronics, programming, computer science and computational thinking for the classroom. In these courses, we will introduce the basics of circuits, electricity, engineering and computing. Each course will focus on the technical aspects as well as the pedagogy, activities, pacing, and strategies for implementing a project-based STEM classroom using the designated microcontroller.

Additional In-person Professional Development
One Day Workshops
Designed to ease the introduction of SparkFun hardware into the classroom, our one day workshops cover the basics of how to use specific products in a classroom setting as well as tips for taking your learning further and designing projects using electronics.
Have a specific goal in mind but not sure how to make it happen? We can provide custom consulting to fit your needs. We have helped districts create curriculum for new classes, design computer science progressions over the course of multiple grade levels, implement makerspaces and more.
