Have your Edu Pi and share it
As part of our Route 500 Digital Accreditation Course, we’re working to develop basic computer science and programming knowledge at local schools, equipping kids with the skills of the future.
Working in the fast-paced, ever-changing and technology-driven world of media and advertising, we’re well aware of the influence that basic computer, programming and coding knowledge will have on the future. These are skills that will go a long way to helping children develop extremely sought after skills; skills that are only growing in demand as we venture further and further into an age of technological dominance.
As part of our Route 500 Digital Accreditation Course, DAN SSA developed a charity concept to bring basic computer skills to primary school children who, due to financial circumstances, do not have access to computers in their daily lives. Using the Raspberry Pi, the now famous credit card-sized single-board computer designed specifically for this purpose, we hope to empower as many kids as possible.
Inexpensive and operating on free open-source software, we’re looking for even more support for the project. If you’re interested, simply click the link at the top right-hand side of this page and found out how to get involved. Our pilot project will run at Philile Pre-Primary School; through the charitable donations of time, expertise and/or money from our supporters, we’re building 13 Edu-Pi units and writing learning aid software for basic language and maths skills.
Get involved and help us feed the minds of young South Africans!
