Google does a lot of good things for the society, the company has given a grant to the Raspberry Pi Foundation to give 15,000 Raspberry Pi Model B for schoolkids around the UK. The grant was made by Google Giving, the philanthropist arm of the company.
Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt was visiting Cambridge where he spent time teaching school kids along with Raspberry Pi’s Eben.
The Raspberry Pi foundation will work with Google and six UK educational partners to find the kids who will get their very own Raspberry Pi.
Liz of Raspberry Pi foundation says, “CoderDojo, Code Club, Computing at Schools, Generating Genius, Teach First and OCR will each be helping us identify those kids, and will also be helping us work with them. You’ll already have seen the Raspberry Pi teaching materials from Computing at Schools; OCR will also be creating 15,000 free teaching and learning packs to go with the Raspberry Pis.”
