Welcome to The Barefoot Project

Our aim is to help young people become confident with ‘computational thinking’ and aware of how technology and data are the foundations of today’s society. We are doing this by providing teachers with FREE high quality, practical resources, lessons plans and local workshops. The project was originally set up in 2014 with funds from the DfE. It is now lead and funded by BT with support from BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, CAS and the Raspberry Pi foundation.
