Was lucky enough to secure some funding for our campus makerspace. I would love any feedback on what I may be missing, or where a good place to start for soldering, arduino and raspberry pi. Thanks.

Any app recommendations? Our district math coach has a vast library of resources and material that can be shared with teachers throughout the district. I am looking for an app that would allow the coach to quickly and easily manage checking materials out/in using unique QR codes. I have found several apps that can do this for books (using ISBN numbers), but I need something that would also work for other types of materials that do not have ISBN numbers. Any suggestions?

What is your favorite Wordpress education/portfolio theme? I see the top 15 ed themes, but it's hard finding comparisons, especially on the features I am seeking.

I am looking for a flexible theme that will allow for asynchronous dialog, easy posting of resource docs. This is for mental health graduate students.

What do you use and why might you like it?
Thank you,
Anna

Do you have a Makerspace in your K-12 setting? Take a quick survey to share your experience!

Your responses help researchers understand more about the role of Makerspaces in K-12 education. It will also help me complete my dissertation! Thank you for your time.

We are looking at purchasing a large quantity of TV panel and touchscreen panel. While we have already decided for the panel model, we are still looking for a good 70" TV model with great anti glare result and good price. Any suggestion ?

FYI
More than 2,000 machines at schools and other organizations contain a backdoor in unpatched versions of Red Hat's JBoss enterprise application server software and are ready to be infected by ransomware.
