Raspberry Pi Model B+ is a computer the size of a deck of playing cards. It can be connected to a TV or PC monitor (using a HDMI adaptor). An Operating System is needed to make it run. The Raspberry Pi foundation provide several different operating systems to try out which are all available online or on the pre programmed Micro SD Card. Raspberry Pi is a great route into learning about aspects of computing. You can learn about the different inputs and outputs of a computer as well as attaching various different outputs to the GPIO pins and program what they do, for example, a traffic light. The Micro SD Card comes with Scratch and Python pre-installed so you can get programming straight away!
