Pi Jam Foundation– Physical & Creative Computing in Schools

PiJam Foundation provides students in schools, access and training to low-cost open source technologies to foster skills like digital making, problem solving and design thinking. They have purchased and use the raspberry pi, which is a low-cost, pocket-sized computer specifically designed for education of students. Through their model, students are exposed to real world problems, which they are required to build solutions for, using technology and their existing academic concepts. These real-world problems lie in the domains of immediate school problems, climate change, pollution control, food and agriculture and other issues in their own communities. They have developed a database of easy to use APIs for complex electronic devices that allow students to use these tools without them getting bogged down by the technicalities. These APIs have been designed in a manner that still require usage of basic programming concepts that push a child to think logically.
