Why am I passionate about the Raspberry Pi?

Over the last few days I have been thinking about how the last two years for me have been so heavily influenced by the Raspberry Pi.

If someone had said that I would be running a successful computer programming club at school, training other teachers in programming and hooked up to such a great community I would not have believed it.

The scary thing is that after all this work I am becoming more and more certain that I want to make the transition from Science / Chemistry teacher to Computer Science teacher.

I made this video to explain how my son got interested in programming and how the Raspberry Pi has influenced him.

I do feel very excited about the future especially now that we have so many young people interested in programming, tinkering and project making. I don’t believe that everyone is destined to become the next big programmer or app developer but I do believe the skills that are developed have a much wider benefit.

Here’s to a bright future!
