Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t have a lot of experience with tech… can I do this?

Yes! FirstByte’s goal is to bring together educators of all backgrounds, and make technology more accessible for teachers and their students. We encourage curriculum authors to include guides for educators, to help clarify and expand on the information in notes and slideshows and provide solutions for classwork problems.

Do you provide the electronics supplies that go with your curricula?

Yes! We own various technology kits that you can borrow for free. Learn more about our loaner program here.
