Technology Tuesday: Raspberry PI

December 20, 2011

Most technology products are from a large company or booming entrepreneur, but today’s Technology Tuesday is about a product called the Raspberry PI made from a not-for-profit organization in the UK.  The Raspberry PI is an inexpensive computer that educators and parents can use to get their young aspiring future leaders interested in computer science, programming, and the STEM field.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK charity that  promotes the study of computer science and STEM related fields.  They focus on outreaching to schools to show younger students that science is fun.  Just like SWE!

The Raspberry PI sells for $25 per computer.  The computer features a 700MHz processor, 128MB of RAM and runs Linux from an SD card.
