Raspberry Pi

At the end of 2017, we applied for a grant from the Community Foundation’s Platten Family Fund, which would be used to purchase Raspberry Pi equipment.  We are delighted that our application was successful.
We purchased Raspberry Pi equipment, which will help to enhance the Computing curriculum and teach higher level coding skills.
The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video. 
Below are some pictures showing the children using the touchscreen raspberry pi's alongside makey makey kits to produce code in the program scratch.
