Premier Farnell is working closely with many countries on national roll-outs of physical computing solutions, but there is still a very long way to go. We are keen to send a strong message to electronics industry, governments across the globe, and educators in the classroom about the benefits of applying physical computing to develop computational thinking.
The tools already exist, we must now work together to develop practical ways that we can provide students with the tools and engage teachers and learning professionals, so students can begin to develop the necessary skills to equip them for the future.
