If you are looking to teach or learn more about the Raspberry Pi single board mini PC yourself you a new Raspberry Pi EDU Learning Kit that has been developed by Tony Chang based the UK might be worth more investigation.
The Raspberry Pi EDU Learning Kit can be programmed using the popular Scratch programming language enabling both children and adults alike to learn more about programming and learning code to interact with electronic devices.
Watch the video below to learn more about the expansion boards that are included in the learning Kits that are available that have been designed to provide users with an easy way to get started programming and playing with electronics. Chang explains a little more :
“We started the kickstarter project in order to reduce overall cost of manufacturing the boards ( More boards ordered = Lower assembly fee ). We currently design & manufacture boards already but this project would be on a much larger scale with more boards ordered and assembled.
The software is already finished but will go through several more phases and updates. As we have been producing excellent quality boards for around 10 years we do not see this as a risk. The software is available in Python to test out all the functions and to start your experience and is also compatible with our Pi-Scratch software which lets you control hardware through Scratch ( MIT produced software for teaching kids ). “
