Slice of Raspberry Pi whets the appetite

Posted on 19/09/2016 by IED

Nearly 200 AWE staff, with some joined by their family, plus local IED members, packed the William Penney Theatre at Aldermaston recently to hear about the latest technology behind the Raspberry Pi, which is helping to inspire the next generation of budding scientists, engineers and IT professionals.

Organised by the IED and supported by AWE, Pete Lomas, from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, gave an enthralling presentation on the Raspberry Pi, its capability, versatility and technology. Raspberry Pi is a tiny affordable credit-card sized computer used to promote programming through fun, practical projects.

“It was a great opportunity to engage with so many engineers and scientists who clearly have an interest in inspiring children to take up careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects,” said Lomas. “I was significantly impressed by the amount of outreach AWE staff already undertake and hope that they will add Raspberry Pi to their educational repertoire.”
