Corby firm RS Components has donated 30 Raspberry Pi Model B computer boards to pupils who have reached the regional and national finals of a young enterprise competition.

The firm gave the computers to pupils from Brooke Weston CTC, Corby Business Academy and Lodge Park Academy who have set up companies under the Young Enterprise Company Programme and have reached the regional and national finals of the competition.

Presenting the students with their computers, Paul Quested, global strategy director, said: “RS has worked with Young Enterprise on various programmes over the past 12 years and is proud of the achievements of the local schools we are currently supporting. This Raspberry Pi donation is in celebration of the success of the students and demonstrates our commitment as a company to encourage hands-on learning that will help foster a life-long love of engineering.”
