Blinking LEDs!

I was at POINT in Fishguard working alongside Span Arts. I had a collection of Raspberry Pi computers and I was teaching the young people how to program. I thought that the work that I had prepared for them would be quite challenging but they sailed through it. They learned about variables and commands and how…
