Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi Kits

The Raspberry Pi kits were a set of activites, software and instructional guides that were designed as a way to introduce students to computers and programming.

Cell Explorer

Cell Explorer

Cell Explorer is a work in progress experiment with QT quick as a way to design and build simple to complex interactive Science Exhibits. This is still a work in progress and is intended as a display of the technology more so then a display of the information.
