Re: Why use a RPi at school?

it would be good to go, I am not a teacher but an engineering manager using STEM & RPi help promote enginering as a career in schools. So not sure if I would be allow to attend such events, but it good to know if RPi group plan any industry input or allows ideas to be share other school projects.

Re: Robot programming :: your 2 cents

We had four dc motors and wannted indepent speed control on each motor, we found the RPi could not manage accurate speed control on four PWM pins. I will admit I need to see if the B+ is better.
