Raspberry Pi Day 2021

Posted in News

When I was young if someone has said Raspberry Pi, I would have said no thanks I prefer cherry! now when we refer to Raspberry Pi is has a whole new meaning. Since the Raspberry first launched the maker in me has enjoyed using them.

Raspberry Pi Day is a special occasion for people all around the world (your preferred date format notwithstanding), (mine is YYYY-MM-DD which confuses my friends and colleagues in the UK when I use it) and I love seeing all the ways that makers, students, and educators celebrate. This year the Raspberry Pi Foundation, they are embracing Raspberry Pi Day as a time to support young learners and creators in our community. Today, we launch our firstΒ Pi Day fundraising campaign. From now until 14 March, (3/14, AKA Pi Day!) I’d like to ask for your help to empower young people worldwide to learn computing and become confident, creative digital makers and engineers.
