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

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)

Christmas present for my daughter. She loved it. It has captured her imagination and now wants to buy more parts to build it up.
Terrific.My nine year old son and I are happily creating code to build and play in minecraft.Love it!
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.
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 :-(
-extra instructions sent by e-mail were unnecessary and just confused the situation as the programme was already installed on the SD card
