• Includes LED lights, an LCD screen and lots more components
• Create a random number generator with LED lights, control the LCD with Python and more
• Enter into the world of science technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)
• Great kit to build electronics projects with the Raspberry Pi (not included)
• Comes with a 160-page handbook with detailed project ideas
• Suitable for ages 14+
• Raspberry Pi not included with this kitWhat can I create with this Raspberry Pi maker kit?
This kit comes with lots of components you can use with your Raspberry Pi (not included). to make a range of projects. Some of the things you can create are dice with LEDS, controlling the LCD with Python, interactive status display, ticker on the LCD screen, Digital clock on the LCD binary clock and whatever your imagination decides.
In addition to these electronics projects you can also use your Raspberry Pi to improve or develop skills in computer programming, for browsing the web, connecting a camera using its camera port or simply using it as a media centre to play your favourite films.
What comes with the bundle?
This kit includes a 160 page book with project examples, an LCD display to send text to and 10 LEDs to provide a quick visual element to your project. You will also find a port-expander, 25 resistors, a variable-resistor and a GPIO-connecting cable for constructing electronic circuits. In addition there’s 2m of insulating wire and two cables with crocodile clips which make connectivity simple and enable re-usability of your components.
The useful set of breadboards included will make it easy to re-use your components in multiple different projects without needing a soldering iron or having to leave them inside one single project.
This kit is suitable for children age 14 and over.
What is Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi (not included) is a computer the size of a credit-card which is great to use for creating hardware and software projects. They are able to connect to real world objects such as the LEDs and LCD screen included in this kit.
The Raspberry Pi connects to a TV or monitor via the HDMI and composite video output on the board. It connects to the components included in this kit using its GPIO (general purpose input output) pins. It also connects to USB devices such as keyboards and mice and USB hubs for more USB connectivity. If you would like to connect the Raspberry Pi to the internet or network, many models have a 10/100Mbps Ethernet port, providing this capability.
