Malvern Festival of Innovation Fringe Event


Earlier this month, Little Pi Shop packed some tester kits and pitched up at this year’s Malvern Festival of Innovation 2013 to help run a series of workshops with non other than Clive Beale, Director of Educational Development at the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The workshops were part of a breakout Fringe Festival designed to give school kids an introduction to the Raspberry Pi and work on some simple coding projects.

All in all, a total of 150 school children were selected from local schools, and given the chance to participate in a 45 minute workshop in which we coded LEDs to flash using Python. They received a fabulous goodybag full of treats from the Festival’s Sponsors, and their very own Pi (complete in a rather lovely presentation box) courtesy of the good folks of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Google.
