Issue #41 — Makey

Friday 28 March 2014

Hi

This week Ben has been very busy working on the new Raspberry Pi website, which is due to launch next week. Ryan has been continuing to run his crowd funding campaign for budget Raspberry Robotics Kit.

Today is the last day to apply for free CPD Training┬ádelivered by the Foundation’s Education team at Pi Towers in Cambridge –┬áso if you are a teacher in the UK who fancies a free training day of all things Raspberry Pi, check out Picademy.

Lots of kids around the country have been receiving the Pis they won in the Google Pi competition the Foundation recently ran.

Until Next Week

Ben & Ryan
