You might be a homeschool geek if you:
…know that Python lives in the computer not a tank;
…that you should never put your Raspberry Pi in the oven;
…buy filament for your printer instead of ink.
This week I am guest posting over at Secular Homeschool in their ‘Soup to Nuts’ series. This week’s discussion is, ‘How To Be A Homeschool Geek’, but I couldn’t do this series without David. Let me introduce him.
David Benton is a geek homeschooling dad to six boys in Charlotte, NC. He first learned to program when he was very young while playing with his Big Track toy. In college he studied design at the School of Architecture at UNCC in addition to receiving a degree in Computer Science. His design background has given him unique ways of writing software and solving software problems. He loves doing geeky projects with the boys or by himself and has recently become involved in the local Maker and Robotics culture.
And now my turn.
Amber Benton is a homeschooling mom of six boys in Charlotte, NC. She has been practicing homeschooling for 11 years using many of Charlotte Mason’s principles. As her older son nears the end of his homeschool career she sees that the work that has brought the most fruit is the work done based on those principles.
Did you see the word geek in there?! I’m a wanna be geek. I’m married to a geek. I hang out with geeks, but I can easily get over my head. So this week’s discussion will be at a friendly entry level.
But don’t worry if you ask technical questions that are over my head I know who to ask!
