Raspberry Pi’s for all UK Dojos

rp

The Raspberry Pi Foundation in association with Google UK have donated Raspberry Pi’s to the CoderDojo Foundation to distribute to UK Dojos! As you can understand with the grassroots nature of the CoderDojo movement it had been challenging to deal with the logistics surrounding this partnership, from actually receiving the Pi’s to figuring out an appropriate distribution network to get them to Dojos! We are delighted to announce that Amazon have come on board and will be carrying out the fulfilment of this partnership for us. The Pi’s are now ready to be distributed to Dojos across the UK. If you would like a box of 5 Pi’s to start with can you please fill in this form.

APPLICATION NOW CLOSED

**It’s very important that your details are filled in accurately as this will be used to ship the Pi’s to you Dojos who share blogs posts and tweet about what they get up to with the Pi’s will then become eligible to receive a supplementary batch! We’re really looking forward to seeing what your Ninjas produce with the Raspberry Pi’s!

Notes & disclaimers: The CoderDojo Foundation will retain ownership of the Pi’s, and they will be sent to you on a long-term loan. The contact person as submitted in the form will be responsible for maintaining and returning the Pi’s if required (ie the Dojo ceases to operate). The contents included in the kit are: A power supply, a Pi, a getting started guide and an SD card with a CoderDojo Special Edition Raspian OS pre-installed. The Dojo will need access to: monitors, cables (ethernet, HDMI -> your monitor’s input)

Will the special edition of Raspbian be available to download anywhere?

Can all CoderDojos receive one even outside of the UK? I am desperate to get my hands on this for the kids at CoderDojo Hawthorn Community House but seems like it is hard to access because I need to get some community fundings and get parents to bring it in when maybe their child is not interested to use it. Would also be good to get a handbook of how to use the Raspberry Pi too.

Hi Sirani,

Thank you for getting in touch. Unfortunately we ran two rounds for Raspberry Pis to be awarded to Dojos around the world (we sent out 960 Raspberry Pi's in total!). The last of which closed in March, we have no current plan to run another round in the immediate future.
We have since ran competitions for Genuinos for youths and Kano Computers, Kano pixel kits and Dash & Dot robots for Dojos. We are in the process of running a competition for Dojos for our new Book 'Create with Code' and Dojos can also win a book and other goodies by filling in the Annual Survey before December 4th.
