The kit provides the perfect way to begin experimenting and developing with the Raspberry Pi. It is an ideal way to get children enthused about computer programming and development. It can also be used as a low powered mini PC at a fraction of the cost of a full priced computer!
What is Raspberry Pi? The Raspberry Pi is a computer the size of a deck of playing cards. With your TV as a monitor or PC monitor, you can use it like a desktop computer to browse the web, it plays HD video too, so you can also use it as a media centre.
But what it is really designed for is computer programming, the OS includes Python and Scratch programming environments which allow users to learn and improve their programming skills. The board has GPIO pins that can be connected to a variety electronic modules, sensors, motors or other control systems and software can be created to perform tasks.
Who Built It? The Raspberry Pi Foundation developed this little device to encourage people to learn to tinker with computing, both in software and in hardware.
What Can You Do With It? Your Raspberry Pi can get to work as the brains in a robot, as a home-automation platform, drive a motor, or operate sensors and displays. For more ideas on what to do with a Raspberry Pi, visit www.raspberrypi.org and join in!
