ELiTE: Using the RPi to Teach CompSci @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

Chelsey Roebuck and Clayton Dahlman’s ELiTE, Emerging Leaders in Technology & Education, uses the Raspberry Pi in communities with limited access to STEM education for classes in computer science and robotics.

Roebuck writes:

We’ve recently launched a new project that we call Pop Up Labs to teach Computer Science using the Raspberry Pi. Because we don’t always have access to computer labs in the locations where we work, we built one for $1000. Our mobile labs in backpacks include 10 Raspberry Pi computers hacked together with Motorola lapdocks and allow us to run our CS and robotics classes just about anywhere!
