I'm a teacher in a primary school and I'm interested in using the RPi with our Year 6. I want to make a program with Scratch to control a Lego remote control car. I've made an example using Windows based Scratch and it works brilliantly and I know I can teach the code to the children without any trouble. What I really want to do though is attach a wireless keyboard and a battery pack to the RPi, set a challenge to program it and mount it to the remote controlled car and then let the kids play with it for an exciting project.
However, I can't get it to work with the RPi because the usb hub the set uses won't work with the RPi. I've found a driver I could use with a standard installation of Ubuntu but it doesn't work with the RPi chipset. Is there anyone out there who has any ideas if it would be possible to find a version I could use for this project?
This is the download link to the Ubuntu version - http://ubuntuone.com/p/vp0/
