Help? Anyone eager, willing, or able to be persuaded to participate, to any extent you’d like, in this free and open Raspberry Pi/CS/EE curriculum for US secondary students?
I’ve been eager for help. A year and a half in, I see a lot of stuff that should be trimmed, a bit of stuff that was left in out of despair, and then huge gaps in things I don’t know enough about - like CS and EE.
Please ask if there are any questions…Bumps and boosts sincerely appreciated.
Victorian Headless Portraits
The Victorian era has many photographs, most of which show the subject sitting or standing with a stern expression. Since photography was still in its infancy, photographers were experimenting with novel ways to create photos that differed from the norm. Animals acting human was one popular concept, and then came the headless portrait. Funny and entertaining, a new genre of photography was born.

Retrospective: Photo Manipulation before the Digital Age at the National Gallery of Art in DC
Using a slow shutter speed combined with a powerful flash, Satoki Nagata captured a series of abstract black-and-white portraits in Chicago’s frigid winter.
Doesn’t the illuminated snow contrast in such an awesome way with the dark human shapes?
On Borf in Silver Spring
This photo catches my attention in many different ways. This graffiti picture is very interesting, it makes you wonder why he put a picture of a random face on the sidewalk. Most graffiti i see all the time is either quotes or pictures that mean something and it all has a message. This photo is attractive because it makes you think more about why he did this and what he was thinking when he did it. This photo is interesting because it doesn’t make any sense when you first see it.
On Borf in Silver Spring
There are 3 reasons why this picture of a Borf tag works. The 1st reason this photo works is because the distortion in the photo is clear. The way that you can tell there is distortion in the photo is by looking at the person in the background one foot is smaller than the other. The way this is achieved in this photo is by using wide angle lens to give photo it’s distortion. What makes this photo such a success the person in the background without the person of photo would lose the distortion.
The motion in the photo is clear to me in the image. It is clear that the smoke around the person has moved because the smoke waves are clearly visible in the photo. Due to the multiple exposures, it is clear that the cigarette in the man’s mouth has also moved. The photographer created a mirror-like feeling by the two cigarettes in the picture paralleling one another. This photo is a great art piece because it looks like it took a lot of skill, but did not actually take much effort at all.
