MIke Carter, Director of TynCan Learning (a preferred educationGateshead eLearning partner) is encouraging Gateshead schools to apply for  “a slice of the Pi” with awards of £1,000 or £2,000 from the Community Foundation’s Platten Family Fund.

The grants can be used to purchase Raspberry Pi equipment, with which they can enhance the computing curriculum and establish out-of-school coding clubs.

Tony and Anne Platten established the Platten Family Fund at the Community Foundation in 2014. The fund has already awarded more than £200,000 to projects which support their philanthropic vision of inspiring a new generation of North East engineers and helping the region go from ‘coal to code’.
