Ben is currently in St. Louis, Missouri where he’s still touring the US on his Raspberry Pi outreach mission. He’s spoken in schools, universities and hackspaces about the Raspberry Pi, the Foundation and its use in education. By next week he’ll have reached his final destination of Salt Lake City, Utah and will be flying home!
This week Ryan launched a KickStarter project for a Pi-less budget robot kit called TurtlTeck.
