Next year promises to be bigger and better with more focussed teacher education on the horizon, more Raspberry Pi to give away and more useful accessories such as bread boards to give away.
What is a Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.
