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.
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!
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro”? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi. But wait, there’s more! Try our new Raspberry Pi WebIDE! The easiest way to learn programming on a Raspberry Pi.
We now have Raspberry Pi Model B with 512MB RAM in stock and shipping now!
