Afterthought Software goes back to school

Published 29 September 2013 under stemnet, talks, news

Afterthought Software director Andy Duller gave a series of career talks as a STEMNET ambassador to year 9 pupils at a local school.

STEMNET aims to provide links and create opportunities in science, technology, engineering and maths. Its ambassadors are role models for young people and one of the aims is to inspire the next generation in STEM subjects.

With several handy props, including a wafer for a chip designed by Picochip and Raspberry Pi, the pupils got a brief taste of what the technology industry has to offer.

The talks come at a time when the millionth Raspberry Pi made in the UK has rolled off the production line. It makes the Raspberry Pi the best-selling UK Computer since the 1980s but it hasn't really taken off properly in education yet.
