NEW PRODUCT – Adventures in Raspberry PiCoding for kids is cool with Raspberry Pi and this elementary guide!

Even if your kids don’t have an ounce of computer geek in them, they can learn to code with a Raspberry Pi and this wonderful book. Written for 11 to 15-year-olds and assuming no prior computing knowledge, this book uses the wildly successful, low-cost, credit-card-sized Raspberry Pi computer to explain fundamental computing concepts. Young people will enjoy going through the book’s nine fun projects while they learn basic programming and system administration skills, starting with the very basics of how to plug in the board and turn it on.

Each project includes a lively and informative video to reinforce the lessons. It’s perfect for young, eager self-learners—your kids can jump in, set up their Raspberry Pi, and go through the lessons on their own.

  • Written by Carrie Anne Philbin, a high school teacher of computing who advises the U.K. government on the revised ICT Curriculum
  • Teaches 11 to 15-year-olds programming and system administration skills using Raspberry Pi
  • Features 9 fun projects accompanied by lively and helpful videos

Help your children have fun and learn computing skills at the same time with Adventures in Raspberry Pi.

  1. I have a young but brilliant cousin.

    What other than the Raspberry Pi itself and the book is required?

    (and perhaps a kids starter pack with everything, maybe even a breadboard, LEDs, keyboard/mouse, interconnects, etc. is in order).
