If you’ve ever wondered what’s so amazing about these little $35 computers, then wonder no more!
The Raspberry Pi Bake-Off is your chance to showcase your own Raspberry Pi projects and creations – for bragging rights, and for the chance to win a Raspberry Pi!
Hendrix College will host the 2014 Raspberry Pi Bake-Off on Friday, March 14 in the Student Life and Technology Center to showcase projects built using the Raspberry Pi learning computer.
…The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into a TV and a keyboard. It costs around $35 and can be used in electronics projects and for many of the things that a desktop PC does, such as spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video.
…This is the second year for Hendrix to host the exhibition.
