Google gives to the Raspberry Pi Foundation

"The announcement today by the Raspberry Pi Foundation is one that will truly take the Raspberry Pi into the education sector - a dream which has been at the centre of their thinking since the project was created. It is great to think that, because of this innovative device, young people can develop new transferrable skills in computer science that the engineering industry is crying out for," adds Mike Buffham, Head of EDE at element14, one of the two chosen distributors of the Pi. "We hope that this will also prompt discussion about what education departments, and indeed Governments, are going to do to ensure the next generation of design engineer will have the necessary core skills. Providing the Raspberry Pi to schools is one thing, but putting real computer science back on the school curriculum would have an even greater impact."
