    Raspberry Pi Ideas?

    I'm scrabbling around looking for a good group project to form the basis of an after class technology club for 6th formers.
    I come from the generation that enjoyed learning to code in basic on a BBC micro and think maybe a Raspberry Pi might recreate
    such inspiration. Anyone got any experience of such a project?
    Thanks

    we are at a similar stage we have currently bought a Raspberry Pi and the head of computer studies is currently working on what he can do and if we plan to by a set of 10 of them to rule out a similar group - will keep you posted on where we go!

    I would strongly suggest you have a look at the work that the Computers @ School group (C@S) are doing in this area ... well worth the effort.

    I am also looking forward to some write-ups of the stuff that went on at BETT on the Learning Together stand where they did a fair bit of coding.

    Thanks for the info and feedback guys! I'll get chasing on those links.

    I've got a idea in my mind developing around the idea of swarm intelligence - independent Ras-Pi robots interacting with each other. Though far too complex to take on as a whole, it seems to give a number of interesting component projects; robot control, sensing, programming, swarm mathmatics etc. Certainly enough to feed the imagination.

    Regards.

    Not sure what part of the world you're in, but you might be interested in the York CAS Hub meeting we're hosting next week: CAS York Hub Meeting - Eventbrite
