Raspberry Pi

Winner, Judges' Award 2015

The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost credit-card sized Linux computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. Developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation (Ebem Upton, Rob Mullins, Jack Land and Alan Mycroft), with the support of volunteers, the idea was born in 2006 as a way of addressing the decline in the numbers and skills levels of the A-Level students applying to read Computer Science at university. The primary goal was to teach computer programming to children, and to put the fun back into learning computing.
