I teach programming and AP Computer science in a technology magnet program. I have my own RPi, and I'd love to use RPi to augment our program. To whom should I apply to try to get a classroom set in order to pilot classroom usage of the RPi? I can write a grant to pay for it if I know I can get the quantitity we need (25).

I'd be willing to write and share curricula and lesson plans, etc.

Thanks,
Melissa

Try sending an email to info@raspberrypi.org, but I think they may still be on holiday so replies may be a bit delayed.

it's entirely possibly that you should be able to buy 25 from either of the suppliers now - will take a few weeks to come though though ATM

But to do that you will need to email them directly. (And they're better equipped to handle bigger numbers than, say, five at a time.)
