The Raspberry Pi is the incredible £24 British computer that is taking the world by storm. It is ideal for children of all ages to experiment, play games and learn valuable skills at the same time. In our essential handbook, we explain why the Pi has such massive potential and show how parents and children can take full advantage of it. We will take you step-by-step through the basics of setting up and configuring the Pi and introduce tons of fun projects that families will enjoy working on together. Kids will love creating their own games and, in the process, they will learn everything they need to know about computer programming for the classroom and beyond!
