Blue Peter

Fri May 31, 2013 7:12 pm

Anyone from the Foundation been approached from Blue Peter? Seems like a great place to show it off to it's target audience. Show the kids how the games on the CBBC website are created and show off Scratch.

I'm waiting for the day that I see a Raspi hot glued to the Tardis control panel.

AIUI the program is still running but has been scaled back dramatically over the years.

I had heard occasional references over the years. When it came up on this thread, I looked it up in order to answer the questions that were posed. Seems to me their "making" segment ought to do some RPi projects. Maybe they could borrow Eben to help out.

All you need is a Raspberry Pi, an old washing-up liquid bottle and some sticky-backed plastic :lol:

I think the creation of Raspberry Pi is worth nominating Eben for a Gold Badge.
