Pycom’s devices, Cloud and network services are used for education in over 200 universities worldwide as they are a fantastic introduction to the world of embedded technology, Python and IoT. If you’re a computer scientist lecturer, an electronics engineering professor or even just interested in giving your students a real-world IoT project, you’ve found the right place.

Getting Started

What Lessons?

We’ve created some lessons that will help you and your students get up and running with Pycom’s hardware, cloud technology and LPWAN networks. This is an area that is evolving all the time and we’ll be adding more lessons as we progress.
Once you have the powerpoint files, you can modify, add you own content or strip stuff out if you have got it covered.
We’d love your feedback too!

Hardware Packages and Pricing

To make life easier, we’ve created an overview of the different education packages and accompanying prices to help you chose the right option for you and your students. You can also purchase any additional products and support (if it’s needed.) This should help guide your selection and get you up and running quickly.

Support before, during and after

Our developers can support you at any stage during your program. All support is given on a remote basis via a voice or video conference. Use it for yourself as a lecturer tuition, a product walk through of your purchased kit, for Q&A sessions, as evangelist support for students or other activities. It’s up to you!
