I spy… Carrie Anne on BBC Technobabble

We were very excited to welcome children’s TV presenter Frankie Vu from CBBC’s Technobabble, a TV show for children dedicated to explaining how technology works in a fun way, to Pi Towers towards the end of 2014 to talk about how computers are often found inside lots of different appliances, toys, and products.

In an episode dedicated to Computing, Carrie Anne demonstrates some of our fun projects such as the weather station project and hamster party cam, both of which you can make and build with your students thanks to our free resources.

If you missed it, and you’re in the UK, you can watch it on iPlayer (the segment starts at about 4 minutes in).

She’s a Techspert you know! Well done. Will be tuning in this evening for “rerun” via satellite.

Carrie Anne’s actual job title is Education Pioneer (geddit?) – I’m wondering if we need to start exploring other puns in the area too, now!

I thoroughly enjoyed this appearance, well done Carrie Anne. A ‘techspert’ indeed.

For the easily irritated, do watch the rest of the episode where footage from Super Mario Bros (NES) is shown when discussing the SNES.

Nice to know I’m not the only one that spotted that glaring error ;-)

The price of the Voxel8 printer they also mentioned is *slightly* more expensive than the Raspberry Pi – $8999 !

I’d be surprised if any type of error escaped you Andrew :)

I liked the subtle placement of the sorting hat in the background too :-)

The Weather Station Project looked great in the show by the way! It’ll be exciting to see that rolled out to schools.
