Technocamp for Year 8 Pupils

May 22nd, 2015 by Sarah Turnham

Many thanks to Rob Lutken and Richard Ward from The University of South Wales for coming into school today to run the Technoclub workshops for our Year 8 Pupils.  Pupils learnt all about Raspberry Pi which is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.  Year 8 Pupils had an awesome time today developing new skills learning how to re-programme their computers using the Raspberry Pi.  Well done Year 8.
