|We invite you to join us in Manchester as we celebrate the 2nd birthday of the Raspberry Pi. We aim to identify and share the impact that this low-cost computer is having on education. As well as sharing the amazing potential of this device for education, we will be showing lots of practical ideas.
Last year we sold out of tickets well before the event, so make sure to book yourself a ticket while you can. Last year’s event page. If you would like to sponsor our event, or lead a session, please contact us.
