About Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is more than just a compact single-board computer; it’s a revolution in accessible, affordable computing designed to bring computer science education to students in schools, emerging nations, and even to hobbyists and professionals. Developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, these tiny machines have made a colossal impact worldwide, offering a plethora of possibilities for learning and innovation.

Educational Empowerment

One of the primary goals of Raspberry Pi is to democratize computer science education. By providing a low-cost yet powerful computing platform, it bridges the gap between students of different socio-economic backgrounds. Schools with budget constraints can afford to introduce their students to important computing concepts without compromising on the quality of education.

Versatility and Scalability

Raspberry Pi boards are remarkably versatile. They are used in everything from basic educational projects to advanced scientific research. Its scalability makes it a popular choice for building clustered computers, automating home systems, and even in robotics. It’s a platform that grows along with your expertise and needs.

Open Source Advantage

Raspberry Pi runs on a variety of open-source software, including different flavors of Linux, which adds to its educational value. Students get exposed to the principles of open-source projects, community contribution, and collaborative problem-solving.

Thriving Community

There is a thriving community of Raspberry Pi users that spans the globe. Online forums, tutorials, and social media groups provide a wealth of knowledge and a supportive environment for both beginners and experts alike. The community is a valuable resource for troubleshooting, sharing projects, and staying up-to-date with the latest innovations.

Internet of Things (IoT) and Beyond

With the advent of IoT, Raspberry Pi has found its place in connected devices and smart home solutions. The board can interface with a variety of sensors and actuators, making it an ideal choice for IoT projects.

Future-Proof Skills

Learning to work with Raspberry Pi equips students with future-proof skills. As the world becomes more interconnected and reliant on technology, the ability to understand, modify, and control hardware and software will become increasingly valuable.

By engaging with Raspberry Pi, students, hobbyists, and professionals alike become part of a broader technological revolution, picking up essential skills that are increasingly vital in our digital world.


This course provides an entryway into computer science and programming using Python, with a hands-on focus on Raspberry Pi technology.

Participants will engage with a Raspberry Pi board to assemble and program their very own laptop. Throughout this engaging process, students will gain insights into how computers function, explore the Linux operating system, and learn to tackle hardware and tech-related challenges.

With their newly built laptop, students will also have the opportunity to create basic games using Python.

What you will learn


Resources: Student FAQs About Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi commonly runs on Raspbian, a Debian-based Linux operating system specially optimized for the Raspberry Pi hardware. However, it’s capable of running other Linux distributions and even non-Linux OS like Windows IoT Core.

Python is the most commonly used language, but Raspberry Pi supports multiple programming languages including Java, C++, and Scratch for those who are new to coding.

Raspberry Pi is usually powered by a micro USB power supply, similar to a standard smartphone charger. Newer models can also be powered via USB-C or even Power over Ethernet (PoE) with an additional HAT accessory.

Yes, modern Raspberry Pi models have built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet ports, making it easy to connect to the internet. Older models without built-in Wi-Fi can be connected using a Wi-Fi dongle.

While Raspberry Pi functions as a basic computer, it lacks certain features like a built-in hard drive and multiple ports. However, its small size and low power consumption make it ideal for specialized applications.
