Limitless possibilities
The Raspberry Pi is a very tiny computer, about the size of a deck of cards. You can use this as a mini desktop computer, to browse the web, or as it plays HD video, you could use it as a media centre. What it is absolutely perfect for is computer programming. The operating system includes Python and Scratch programming environments, which will allow you to both learn and improve your programming skills, making this perfect for beginners and more advanced users alike. The board has GPIO pins which you can connect to a huge variety of sensors, motors, control systems, lights and other electronic modules.

Just add a display
The Raspberry Pi 3 Starter Kit comes with everything you would need to get started with the Raspberry Pi 3. All you need to do is connect it to your monitor or TV. This kit includes a keyboard and mouse, pre-loaded SD card, a Blinkt! with eight rainbow lights, a Pibow case, a heat sink, stickers and a guide, as well as a worldwide power supply and HDMI cable.

Perfect for beginners
A friendly guide to getting started is included to show you how to boot up your Pi 3, connect it to the WiFi and use it to browse the internet, or even play Minecraft. You will also learn how to program and code with Python. Python is a widely-used programming language that’s designed to emphasise code readability, meaning that you can work more quickly than with other programming languages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter kit with everything you need to get going. Good value and even has instructions!
