The talk will present technical information about the Raspberry Pi alongside a discussion of the Foundation's educational aims.
Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity for an in-depth Q&A on both educational and technical matters."

Bristle Bot Build
Looking or a fun little project you can share with kids? Bristle bots combine the fascination of robots with a few inexpensive and easy to find parts. To build this you can either buy one of the Radio Shack vibrator motors #273-0107 or bring a broken cell phone to harvest its vibrator, a 3 volt button cell battery, and a toothbrush. If you choose to harvest the vibrator motor from a cell phone plan on extra time and the need for some miniature size screwdrivers.
Show & Tell - 7 to 9 p.m.
We will be looking at how the new $35 Raspberry Pi computer could change the way students learn about programming or providing inventors with an easy way to create Internet enabled prototypes.
