11. Raspberry Pi
What problems are they trying to solve?
- "Today’s computers don’t invite programming experimentation and hardware manipulation because of how expensive and arcane they are."
- "As a result, nowadays, young people are getting less and less exposure to advanced computer programming compared to in the 1990s, leading to a dearth in computer science talent at the university level and subsequently in industry."
How are they solving them?
By creating and distributing cheap, accessible, and programmable computers called Raspberry Pis.
How can teachers use Raspberry Pi in the classroom?
- As a hands-on activity in computer science classes
- In science labs
