On February 21, Kerala Chief Minister Shri Oommen Chandy reiterated his vision of a “Digital Kerala” leading India’s technology sector, as more than 2,500 schoolchildren across the state were given Raspberry Pi computer kits and encouraged to start coding under a first-of-its-kind education project in the country.
