For my daughter Alina, who has started building stuff with BBC Micro:Bit, I am running Cambridge Half Marathon on 3rd March 2019 and raising money towards buying equipment for the "Science & Technology Club" in Cambourne.

"Science & Technology Club" is open to all young ones interested in the fascinating world of Science and Technology .

Promoting science and technology to the young people in and around Cambourne.

We have regular technology days.

Hands-on sessions, demonstrations and brief lectures by local experts in their field.

It is a free service open for all kids and teenagers in Cambourne aged 8 to 17, open to all abilities and backgrounds. We teach children how to work together and cooperate to achieve a common goal. They learn that by collaborating and applying their intelligence and strength they can accomplish goals they couldn’t reach working in isolation. They learn how to share knowledge freely, learn from one another and share tasks.

This is a great opportunity for children to learn the fundamentals of electronics and computer programming from local industry professionals. They learn how to program the BBC Micro:bit and the Raspberry Pi and make interesting projects with them including electronic components, Internet of Things (IOT) and robotics. They learn Scratch like visual programming, Python and web development.

My last few professional runs were -

Cambridge Half Marathon (Year 2018) - 2:07:04

Cambridge Cambourne 10K (Year 2011) - 01:08:53

Airtel Delhi Half Marathon (Year 2008) - 2:31:10

Marlow 5K (Year 2008) - 0:42:30

My target is to beat my own time.
