In a bid to help young people to learn how to build computers of their own, Oxygen donated a ‘Raspberry Pi’ to computer science pupils at Tiverton High School on Friday.
The credit card sized computer is completely see-through, allowing pupils to analyse how it works, and will be used in all sorts of ways to enhance the curriculum. With capabilities which belie its small size, the ‘Raspberry Pi’ is a nevertheless a fully working computer which users can plug a mouse and full-size keyboard into.
Steve Lodge, MD of The Oxygen Agency, said: “As a business that depends heavily on technology we were delighted to fund the Raspberry Pi for the school. One day these students will be technology experts and web developers of the future, and it’s great that we can help the school keep at the forefront of these new technologies.”
Paul Barrett, a senior web designer at Oxygen, presented the computer to delighted pupils on Friday afternoon and stayed to take a Q&A session afterwards.
