Issue #101 — Interactive

Friday 22 May 2015

Hi everyone

I’m back from San Francisco after a great Maker Faire. The Foundation team ran the DOTS activity (connect the dots with conductive paint) and gave a number of talks and presentations, met a huge number of people and won Editor’s Choice.

This week the Inquirer Tech Hero Award ceremony took place – and Raspberry Pi took away two prizes: Eben won Tech Champion and the Raspberry Pi 2 won Best Product.

Next week is Picademy North, which takes place in York at the National STEM Centre.
