Submission + - Google Gives 15,000 Raspberry Pi to UK Schools (bbc.co.uk) 1

Grench writes: Search giant Google is providing funding to the Raspberry Pi Foundation to give 15,000 new Raspberry Pi Model B computers to schools all around the United Kingdom.

Google Giving's partnership with the Raspberry Pi Foundation is a significant investment in UK IT education; it is hoped this will help turn around the decline in UK school-leavers going on to study IT in colleges or universities.

15,000x Model B units at $35 each = $525,000

The Foundation's website also has an article on this news here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/3158
