This is why I based my Learn How To Program tutorial on the Raspberry Pi:
Raspberry Pi has been selected as a MacRobert Award finalist for its inexpensive credit card-sized microcomputers, which are redefining how people engage with computing, inspiring students to learn coding and computer science and providing innovative control solutions for industry.
(On June 30, 2017, the Raspberry Pi won the prestigious UK engineering prize, the MacRobert Award.)
This is how to engage kids in learning computing. The Raspberry Pi is a fun device. It’s easily affordable. And it’s extremely versatile.
Most successful computers in history:
- Windows PC
- Raspberry Pi (!!!)
