This kit contain everything your child will need to take Minecraft beyond a simple game to learning how to write computer programs that interact with your game and creative world. Even if you as an adult have never even heard of Raspberry Pi and Python your child will be able to follow this kit and book to create a truly magical world.

Raspberry Pi is a UK developed mini computer about the size of a large matchbox, designed to teach children how to code.

The Pi is the latest Pi3 complete with a cool self assembly case to protect it.

The micro SD card is imaged with 'Rasbian', the BrightMinds recommended operating system for children. Instructions of how to do this are included in the book. Rasbian includes the coding software 'Scratch' used by most schools, the music synthesiser 'Sonic Pi' and of course the ever so popular 'Minecraft for Pi' making it ideal for children.

We have included a chiclet keyboard, usb mouse and power supply, all you have to supply in either a monitor or TV with HDMI socket (cable included in the pack), and the ability to write to an SD card (some PCs have these or buy a SD card read/write)

The fabulous book includes 9 projects written especially to inspire young people. It is written at a level which is perfect for self-study by 11+. who is into Minecraft but frustrated by build times and wants to add their own mods.

Projects include the following:

  • Setting up a local Minecraft server
  • The Big Adventure- Crafty Crossing.
  • Giving Blocks a mind of their own
  • Building 3D structures
  • Using Data files
  • Interacting with Electronic Circuits (requires additional electronic components)
  • Interacting with blocks
  • Building anything automatically
  • Tracking your players as they move

Contents

  • Raspberry Pi3
  • Rainbow Pi3 Case
  • USB keyboard
  • USB mouse
  • HDMI cable
  • Mini SD card
  • Power supply
  • Adventures in Minecraft Book

This book can be used without the Raspberry Pi on a PC or Apple Mac.

Access to internet required to download Rasbian and the ability to write to an SD card (some PCs have these or buy a SD card read/write)

Age 11+

The kit has proved an excellent purchase, our 9 and 10 year old sons have already coded songs using Sonic Pi and created animations using Scratch. As Minecraft fans they are working their way happily through the accompanying Adventures in Minecraft book. We also bought Adventures in Raspberry Pi, which is another project-based book that's easy for them to work through without much adult input. The kit had everything we needed to get a quick start without any hitches, which is always a relief on Christmas Day, and it is great to see the boys learning and creating confidently.

Bad

No real instructions on how to set it up. Jonny Ball saying how easy it was to set up did not give any practical info. It appeared not to work so it was sent back. Disappointed :-(

Good

-extra instructions sent by e-mail were unnecessary and just confused the situation as the programme was already installed on the SD card
-the mouse didn't work so we had to buy another one
-but my granddaughter was thrilled to bits with it !!
