The Manual

A manual is currently in production by members of the Computing At School working group. This began on the 13 October 2011 and is due to be ready for early March 2012. The manual is aimed at the project's target audience, children, so that they can take their "First steps in Computer Science".

For the first release (~January/February 2012), there will mostly likely be very minimal documentation. A 'schools' release is due in June/July 2012.


Your Projects

Doing a project at school or have a Raspberry Pi Club? Add it in this section to allow others to follow your progress!

Please add details of your group and what plans you have for the RPi or provide a link to your homepage.

Puppy hacker School

For smarter kids of all ages, teachers, self-tutored and the fast learner. Based on doacracy principles of learning by doing Puppy Hacker School is open for learning on your existing hardware, using Puppy Linux. Whilst awaiting your first punnet of raspberries, get cracking. All bones welcome.

University of Manchester - School of Computer Science

We want to use the Raspberry Pi with a simple hardware board and set of downloadable activities to use it to encourage young people (or anyone else) get into embedded computing. We're currently looking at piface for the interface board and trying to come up with little activities to do. We've got some ideas but would love some more if anyone else wants to get involved.

We already run Linux workshops for schools and the National UK Schools Animation Competition, which uses Scratch.

The Manchester Grammar School Computing Society

A new co-curricular club for Y9 boys aimed squarely at the new "UK Computing in Schools" initiative. Details of what we're doing are on the MGS Computing Society page.

The University of Kent - School of Computing

Many of both the students and staff at the School of Computing have been following the Raspberry Pi for a long time and are eagerly waiting to get started on projects using them. We are also strong supporters of the Foundation's objective in getting more young people interested in "real" computing rather than just playing games or web browsing.
