Grench (833454) 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:"

Why is Google not helping American schools ? (1)

There are lots of American kids who also need help.

Why only helping the kids in UK while kids in USA don't get no help from Google ?
