Both GHI Electronics and Microsoft have a passion for education and empowering today's youth with the tools necessary to create tomorrows technology. With a strong passion for education, on November 5th, 2015, GHI Electronics and the BrainPad will make it's first debut at a Microsoft YouthSpark event right here in Michigan. And what a debut it will be! We are taking 150 of the brightest students in the Metro Detroit area and teaching them coding fundamentals using the BrainPad and Scratch for .NET Micro Framework.

What is Scratch for .NET Micro Framework? Scratch for .Net Micro Framework is free software that allows you to use the MIT Scratch programming environment with .Net Micro Framework micro-controller boards and peripherals. This awesome software was created by Martin Calsyn and given to the community because of his belief in educating tomorrow's engineers today!

The BrainPad was designed as a powerful educational tool that can be used to teach everyone from kids, to college students and professionals. Kids will start to learn programming using Scratch and the moving onto learning Visual Studio, one of the most widely used professional tools.

If you have that same passion for education please take a few moments and share a success story with us!
