The T3 Alliance On-Boarding Training programs includes programming with Raspberry Pi  kit with attachable sensors; instruction in programming using NodeRed; understanding and implementing Design Thinking to address community problems; and empowering students to develop a growth mindset.  


4-Day Training Agenda

The T3 Alliance program focuses on training instructors using cutting-edge technologies: 3D printing, programmable Raspberry Pi devices, and autonomous vehicles (land/sea/air) that inspire students to pursue a STEM career field. Students’ knowledge is reinforced using Design Thinking to solve a local community issue with their new technological skills. Throughout the process instructors learn how to develop students’ resilience and a Growth Mindset. Training will be adapted to meet the needs of specific audiences to involve local community engagement opportunities.
