What is Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit card sized computer that plugs into any normal TV or monitor. It enables people to explore computing, whether you are old, middle aged or young. It can also be used to teach how to write computer programmes using special computer languages such as Scratch and Python. Raspberry Pi came from the idea that, without an affordable solution, children of the future would grow up without being computer literate in the new age of technology.

What can I do with a Raspberry Pi?
What you can do with the Raspberry Pi vastly outweighs what you can’t do. The possibilities are practically endless. From something as simple as using it as a normal computer with an office package and an internet browser to making your own retro games console. The GPIO (General-purpose input/output) terminals can be used in the same vein as a switch to turn objects on and off or even using it as a quick reaction game.

What comes with the bundle?
This Raspberry Pi quad core starter kit comes with the added benefit of having everything you need to start learning in one box. It comes with a keyboard and mouse to set everything up as well as a power supply and Wi-Fi dongle to get connected to the internet. This provides you with the perfect complete starter kit to set you off in the world of programming and computer technology.

Does a beginner need anything else to start using this?

Asked by: Gmagoo
As long as you have a suitable monitor to connect to this should contain everything to get the Pi operational.
