Raspberry Pi computer: Can it get kids into code?

By Julian Joyce, BBC News

The hope of Britain’s future computer science industry is gathered around a tiny device in a school classroom in Cambridgeshire. The pupils of Chesterton Community College ICT class have been invited to road-test the long-awaited Raspberry Pi computer. A projector throws the image of what the Pi is generating – a simple game of Snake (available on any Nokia phone near you) – onto a whiteboard. The atmosphere is feverish as the 12 year olds compete for the keyboard. Crucially, they are not just playing the game – they have created it by writing their own computer code.
