Eben Upton, Founder of Rasberry Pi $35 Computer, Talks Teaching Kids to Program
CNN interviewed Eben Upton, the co-founder of
the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Upton and colleagues
at Cambridge University founded the charitable organization
which created a tiny, credit card size computer to help
kids learn how to program. The computer costs $35 and
can be connected to your TV or monitor and a keyboard. The tiny little
PC can be used for games, word processing, accounting and playing video. The organization is focused on the educational market and kids seem to love that the computer is not in a box. The computer leads the kids through the steps to modify a program, and that's what gets them hooked Upton says. Once they get a good result, they want to learn more.
It's an amazing device that is generating major buzz. You can read more about
Rasberry Pi at its website.
