Raspberry Pi Starter Kit
The Raspberry Pi is the wallet size computer that revolutionised circuit board computing. By connecting the Raspberry Pi to a monitor, a mouse and a keyboard, you can run a Linux-based operating system almost anywhere. As well as having the same features as a normal computer, the Raspberry Pi can also interact with the world around it. It's been used in a wide variety of tech-based projects, from weather monitoring to art and music.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the third generation model, and so has some upgrades in the on-board technology. Like it's predecessor, it has 4 USB slots, an Ethernet connector, audio jack and a full-size HDMI port. It also has a slot for a micro SD card, to be used as the hard drive. This model also includes WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity without the need for additional accessories. This means that by using a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse, additional USB ports are available for different projects. In an upgrade to previous models, the Raspberry Pi 3 has a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, and a 400 MHz GPU.
This kit contains everything you need to get a jump start into the world of circuit board computing. The start-up guide talks you through fitting your Pibow case, installing a heat sink and the Blinkt! LED strip,, and then navigating through the operating system, teaching you how to browse the internet, play minecraft and write code, both from the operating system terminal, and using Scratch, a pre-installed software package designed to help you learn algorithm building. This is a thoughtfully put-together and demystifying introduction to programming.
