(January 14, 2014) – 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. Read more about
the Raspberry Pi here.
This is the second
year for Hendrix to host the exhibition.
“Last year, we
had some 20 projects and about 100 attendees at the event,” said David J. Hinson, executive vice president and chief
on the event is available here.
