Community Foundation Grant Award for Raspberry Pi Computers
17th November 2016
Canning Street Primary School are very pleased to be the first North East school to receive a grant to purchase some amazing single board computers developed to promote the teaching of basic computer science; the Raspberry Pi!
The grant was generously awarded by the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland’s school grants scheme and local philanthropist, Tony Platten’s Platten Family Fund to realise Mr Platten’s vision of inspiring a new generation of North East engineers!
We would like to thank Mr Platten and the Community Foundation for this grant, it is much appreciated and we are looking forward to sharing examples of our computer science and coding work that we will produce using our Raspberry Pis.
