About Me

I’m Paul Bianchi, and I teach high-school Physics in suburban New York. I enjoy hiking and kayaking when the weather is nice, puttering about with Arduinos when it’s not, eating too much of my partner’s excellent cooking, and reading good sci-fi.  Prior to that I spent several years teaching in Istanbul, Turkey, where I became fond of sour cherry juice, Orhan Pamuk novels,  and Byzantine and Ottoman history.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Juan Pizarro, from Chile. I want to teach arduino on school, and want to use and translate part of your material to spanish.

    I want to know what is the license of your work, may be creative commons.

    I will release the documents under CC BY-SA. Can I use part of your work.
    Bye

  2. Hi Paul,

    It’s two years since this conversation on your blog. I’m now teaching high school computer science and digital media (in Seattle), and about to start an Intro to Computer Science course. This is not an AP course, but a more general intro to programming.

    I would love to chat with you, perhaps in email, about your experiences using Arduino and other tools in high school. Are you still doing it?

    You can find me at rooseveltcs.org, where there’s a link for my email.

    Thanks.

    (PS, I’m now an experienced WordPress developer, if that’s of any help to you still.)

  3. I will soon be diving into WP for my own site, but can’t help you yet.

  4. The feed works with a URL of feed://quark…. instead of http://quark

    I suspect there is some automatic way in WordPress to do it, but I haven’t been there yet.

    • I’m using the “Widgets” screen to drag an RSS feed button over. But whenever I do that, it wipes out all the links in the same column. It seems to be an issue with the HTML for the theme I’m using.

  5. Paul,

    Nice work. I’ve been using Arduino and planning to teach a college course for non-tech folks with it. I’m also toying with the career-change possibility of teaching high school math and computer science, so your work is inspiring.

    Thanks for sharing it.
