On the 10th June 2010 Iain Major (a director from Bits From Bytes ltd) went to the annual Techlink conference to demonstrate RapMan. Techlink is a project supported by a local engineering company’s charitable trust. Through this support secondary schools throughout the South West of the UK have been able to purchase CAD/CAM equipment that they would otherwise have not been able to afford . Over the last couple of years the charity has been purchasing CraftROBO machines (cutter/plotters) for every junior school (7 to 11 year olds) in the area…. But the good news is that
they are now looking at the possibility of providing a RapMan machine to secondary schools (11 to 18 year olds).
