Our Visit to the Department for Transport
We were invited to the Department for Transport to present our Raspberry Pi project to the technical and inclusion team for buses and taxis, as our project was an interactive bus stop designed especially for passengers with visual impairment.
When we arrived at the London office, we were stopped by security as they weren’t expecting school students to attend meetings at this venue. However, they were surprised to hear that we were invited to meet some very important people in the department and we were given the red carpet welcome after we explained the reason for our visit.
It was an amazing, once in a lifetime experience. We gained so much knowledge and we were so lucky to meet such important people . In the meeting we presented our project to the team in the London branch as well as to the team in Hastings via video conference.
We are now looking forward to taking part in next year’s Raspberry Pi project and hope it will be a bigger success than this one!
