Devon has been selected as one of only two parts of the UK to host a new initiative which will see thousands of seven-17 year olds learn more about the computer language used to create software, apps and websites.

Bideford, Braunton and South Molton libraries have been chosen to host the free sessions in partnership with the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

They will learn about computer science using computers, as well as the small single-board computers developed by the charity.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation, founded in 2009 to promote the study of basic computer science in schools, is now calling for volunteers to spare a few hours a month at evenings or weekends to help power the special ‘coder-dojos’.

Volunteers need to be creative and passionate about inspiring young people.
