Raspberry Pi

What is the Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.

The raspberry Pi is a SBC ( Single Board Computer ). It has had many models starting with the first Raspberry Pi released in February 2012. Since that time the Raspberry Pi has only improved with each new model increasing in power and bringing more features, whilst the price has remained affordable. The latest model is the Raspberry Pi 4.

Digital Maker Projects

The Raspberry Pi has the ability to interact with the outside world and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras. We want to see the Raspberry Pi being used by kids all over the world to learn to program and understand how computers work. Learn more about the Raspberry Pi at -
