One of the days activities will involve LEGO bricks and we are looking for donations (participants will be encouraged to build their own Raspberry Pi enclosure – please see https://ideas.lego.com/projects/102740).
If you have any unwanted LEGO bricks and would like to donate them please drop your bag(s) off at our George Square office (address below). Please note, all unused bricks will be donated back to suitable recipients (e.g. local charity shops).
We are located in the Hugh Robson Building, ground floor (formerly Erskine Medical Library) on the North side of George Square. Enter through the doors opposite the Hugh Robson reception. Follow signs for Learning Technology Section, and ring the e-learning buzzer.
