Larah Armstrong  PFLUGERVILLE, TX
I am a computer science major in the Austin area and I am really interested in experimenting with a Raspberry Pi Beowulf cluster for various uses in programming, testing and genereal awesomeness. In all seriousness, I feel like this process would be incredibly academically rewarding. However, I do not have the funds readily available to do so. That's where you come in! If you believe in the personal and professional growth of tomorrow's IT professional, please donate today! I would greatly appreciate anything you put forward and will update all donors on my progress as well as teach you how the process is done!

Below I have listed some of the components that I will need to purchase.

- (5) four-layer DogBone Stack Case Enclosures
- (21) Raspberry Pi 2 Model B project boards
- (21) 8GB micro SD memory
- (21) Micro USB cables
- (30) 3ft ethernet cables
- (3) 8-port switches
- (3) 10-port powered USB hubs

I just purchased the equipment I need for six nodes! The last of it should arrive by August 7th. This is only a fraction of the original project, so donations are still open! Thank you so much everyone :)

Hey everyone! Since donations have slowed down, I'm going to go ahead and start the project with fewer nodes. Thank you again everyone! :)
