In our first podcast with Steven Hope, we interview Cat Lamin. Cat is a trained primary school teacher, turned independent consultant of computer science. Her passion is to share her knowledge and enjoyment of computing science and coding, as well as her expertise with the Raspberry Pi. She has worked as a facilitator for the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s free CPD, Picademy, as well as working for the National Stem Centre in York and writing resources and articles. As part of her work for Maple Bear, she has spent time in Brazil training teachers in computational thinking and I’ve also delivered training in both Argentina and the US. Cat also works part time for Crossover Solutions, where she has led peer-led training to teachers in many schools. She also works for pi-top, where her mission is to enthuse teachers about using Raspberry Pi in their classroom as well as to ensure that pi-top are creating top-notch software that really can help teachers to get the most out of their computer science lessons.
