Excited for Picademy North – York May 2015!

Posted: May 2, 2015 by schoolpiclub in General News


I just wanted to do an official blog post to say how thrilled I am that my application to the Raspberry Pi Foundation Picademy Course has been successful. I’m looking forward to meeting other Pi-oneers and meeting the foundation team.

Lara (Mary Mags Pi Club) and I all set and we have a 2 hour journey on the train to talk Pi too!



Fun with Cannybots

Thankfully it’s a Bank Holiday weekend so I have extra time on my hands to get ready for Monday evening’s Raspberry Jam. This morning (Saturday) two parcels from arrived!

Two little Cannybots, some accessories, a racetrack and the Pi_mazing Maze!!

One cannybot was already setup for the Racetrack and can be controlled with an iPhone. Within minutes I had this up and running…which was fab.

Now onto the other Cannybot  – controlled by a Raspberry Pi and Scratch. I’m still in the process of getting this up and running, think it’s my bluetooth dongle that’s causing the delay…..but watch this space. I shall be bringing the Cannybots to the Preston Raspberry Jam on Monday 4th May
