US maker and Raspberry Pi champion goes to the White House

On Friday (June 17) the White House will recognise ten individuals from across the US as “White House Champions of Change for Making.” They are being recognised by President Obama for their efforts to make technology more accessible for educators, inventors and entrepreneurs.

Limor Fried, founder of the maker website Adafruit and champion of platforms such as Raspberry Pi in the US, will be one of those recognised.

The first White House Maker Faire was launched in June 2014 where President Obama launched the Nation of Makers initiative, a call to make sure more students, makers and entrepreneurs, had access to a new class of technologies—such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and desktop machine tools.
