DS Party Page - Win Prizes Every Day!
Join us as we celebrate DesignSpark’s 7th Birthday… all week long!
Each day this week from Monday 10th July until Friday 14th July we will be providing you, our community members, with the opportunity to win some free goodies to celebrate our birthday.
Our final giveaway of the week to celebrate our 7th birthday is the brand new pi-top PULSE (136-7934) which was launched yesterday exclusively to RS Components. pi-topPULSE is an accessory by pi-top to help build Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths based projects with music, lights and sound. The accessory can be used with pi-top or pi-topCEED, and furthermore as an add-on board to the Raspberry Pi 3 (896-8660). The microphone can be used to record music and a DIY cloud-based voice service for students to ask Computer Science related questions. Simply learn, play or create fun projects.
To be in with a chance of winning simply comment at the bottom of this article with the text “DESIGNSPARK BIRTHDAY - DAY 5 ENTRY” or ensure that you are registered as a DesignSpark member and follow the instructions on our pinned Twitter post.
