With STEM and the maker movement becoming an increasingly important focus for the technology industry, it is important that we are encouraging the right skill sets in the next generation of software developers.
We propose a Portable Linux Lab, based on Intel Galileo or Edison boards, as a cheap and easy way of bringing Linux and programming knowledge into the classroom and Coder Dojo. The lab is designed to be a springboard for students to experiment in a Linux environment, which they may otherwise not have access to. This will ensure that educators have adequate resources to operate their classes, unfettered by location or existing infrastructure.

We will present a practical, portable and alternative solution to teaching Linux programming in a Windows-dominated classroom.
