Rasberry Pi computers for all young people at school in Surrey.
This will make Surrey an even better place to live, by making it possible for all young people to have a go at programming and develop their computer science skills.
As the use of computers in day-to-day life increases, skills in computer science become ever more valuable.
Rasberry Pi is a cheap, accessible, programming-oriented computer. They cost from only £20, which is cheaper than a lot of textbooks!
This idea is different because it is an affordable and practical solution to developing computer science skills amongst young people. It has been shown to work, has the investment of Google Giving for schools in certain areas, and the support of Michael Gove (Education Secretary).
School children can teach themselves how to programme, supported by tutors in schools. Children could also develop their skills outside school, joining in extra-curricular activities such as the Code Club (Woking) and Young Rewired State events.
