The Raspberry Pi is a powerful credit-card sized micro-computer that can do anything a desktop computer can do. The board was designed to help both kids and adults learn how to programme and get started in the world of computers, all at an affordable price, making the Raspberry Pi a fantastic tool for coding in languages such as Python and Scratch. The single-board computer comes with built-in ports allowing it to interact with the outside world – it can accept accessories such as a keyboard, mouse, monitor or camera, as well as connect to the Internet, and more.

The Raspberry Pi lets you browse the web; take videos and photographs; play music and high-definition videos; or if you just need to work on a word-processor, it can do that too. Being Internet-connected gives the Raspberry Pi the ability to let makers create Raspberry Pi projects such as weather stations; voice assistants; game consoles – the possibilities are endless.
