CAS East Suffolk Primary Hub
Head of ICT: Mrs Caroline Moore
Woodbridge Primary School, Woodbridge
15th July 2013 16.30 - 18.00
Schools around the UK are being given free Raspberry Pi computers, to help create a new generation of computer scientists. Funded by Google, CAS and the Raspberry Pi Foundation the hope is that the free devices will inspire children to develop their computing skills. As a result this hub has a number of Raspberry Pi machines to loan to schools / students.
This session will provide a "hands on" basic introduction to the Raspberry Pi and its capabilities and then discuss how best to distribute the computers to Hub members projects / clubs / pupils.
Places are limited by the number of machines that we have but if the event is full please get in touch with us as collaborative working is encouraged. If you have your own pi or are familiar with them then please let us know if you are prepared to come along and help other colleagues.

The Computing At School group (CAS) aims to promote the teaching of Computing at school. CAS was born out of our excitement with our discipline, combined with a serious concern that many students are being “turned off” computing by a combination of factors that have conspired to make the subject seem dull and pedestrian. Our goal is to put the excitement back into Computing at school.
The Computing At School group (CAS) is a grass roots organisation, whose energy, creativity, and leadership comes from its members. CAS is a collaborative partner with the BCS through the BCS Academy of Computing, and has formal support from other industry partners. Membership is open to everyone, and is very broad, including teachers, parents, governors, exam boards, industry, professional societies, and universities. We speak for the discipline of computing at school level, inc. FE, and not for any particular interest group.
Computing At School is endorsed and supported by:
