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
