On Thursday 24th November we held our first ever Teacher training evening, here at Kitronik HQ. Joining us from Just Add Sharks were our good friends Dominic Morrow and Martin Raynsford, who brought with them their expertise of all things laser cutters.

The main aims of the evening was the sharing of ideas and practices. Kitronik and Just Add Sharks shared ideas centred around the BBC microbit and laser cutting respectively and Teachers also shared ideas and experiences amongst themselves. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the feedback from the attendees indicated that they did also.
