What can I do with this Raspberry Pi Robot Arm kit?
This robot arm kit is a great way to practice constructing your own projects. It is a fantastic tool for school teachers or others who want to get kids coding, and supported by an online portal. 12 months of access to this portal accompanies every copy of the kit and includes resources such as lesson ideas, worksheets, videos and handouts.

In addition to the web resources, printed instructions are included to help you get underway. These allow you to make full use of the contents, such as the pre-loaded SD Card, camera module and the fully assembled robot arm. This kit is designed to assist those wanting to gain experience with electronics, building projects and develop skills in computer programming. It runs using one of the world’s smallest computers – the Raspberry Pi.

Why does this kit come with the Raspberry Pi?
This remote-controlled robot arm kit comes with a Raspberry Pi, which is a computer is as small as a credit card. It plugs into any TV screen with an HDMI or composite video input to use as its display. On the Raspberry Pi you can surf the web, type using a word processor or write your own computer programs thanks to the versatile ARM processor. It was engineered to provide an affordable way to learn how to program. Its size and power make it perfect for portable projects.

This kit has been designed to introduce the young to using the Python programming language to operate real-world objects. This is achieved by first allowing them to build programs in a simpler graphical programming language, Scratch, then applying the same principals to text-based Python. Resources are included to help make the transition between the two.

The Scratch programming language uses a graphical drag and drop system. This program is included as a development tool to get kids coding and understand how to control real life objects like motors, which control the arm’s movement.

What is included in this Raspberry Pi Robot Arm kit?
The Raspberry Pi robot arm kit comes with the robot base and robot arm as the main interactive features of the kit. To control these, as Raspberry Pi and Case are included. This is accompanied with an 8GB SD card which is pre-loaded with the Raspbian operating system and software to control the arm.

For future work and development, the kit includes Raspberry Pi camera module. 4 D size batteries are included to power the Robot Arm. The instruction book will guide you through setting up your project and is an excellent tool for teachers in the classroom. The VGA to HDMI cable allows you to display your project on a screen and the 4 port USB accepts keyboard and mice to control.

Carrying case with keys is included to transport your parts safely and lastly a multifunction screwdriver helps with building and disassembling your project.
