We are expecting a large turnout so please email jcu21@cl.cam.ac.uk for a place.

Raspberry Pi Foundation : The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK registered charity that aims to promote the study of computer science and electronics at the school level.

The Raspberry Pi Computer: Our first project is a flexible low-cost computer. It provides an ideal environment for experimenting with programming and electronics. The computer is credit-card sized, fanless, starts quickly and consumes at most a few watts of power. It costs 22 pounds/$35 for the Model-B (15 pounds/$25 for Model-A). Of course there are numerous other applications for a powerful and low-cost computer including helping to close the digital divide. It can also be seen as a simple, open and general-purpose digital building block for incorporating into larger systems, e.g. that need to drive a display, communicate or compute.
