Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools.

Uptake of the Raspberry Pi was beyond expectations - the machine is a small, cheap, and not very energy hungry computer which runs the Linux operating system.

Find more details at Wikipedia.

The University of Southampton has put together the first supercomputer based on Raspberry Pi machines (see http://www.southampton.ac.uk/~sjc/raspberrypi).

Projects

Developing programming skills with Minecraft and Python

Hans Fangohr (Investigator), Alvaro Perez-Diaz

PythonTool is a Minecraft mod created for this project which allows interactive execution of Python scripts which interact with the game in real time. It intends to make teaching programming to children or non-expert users easier and more appealing.
