Adventures in Raspberry Pi

After completing the HTML 101 course, we've moved onto some Python, by using the book, "Adventures in Raspberry Pi".  Even though the book is geared towards 11-15 year olds, our son, age 8, is happily whizzing through the programming adventures in the book with a little assistance from his dad.

The Raspberry Pi itself can be purchased from many sources on the web.  We just bought a few basics to start with.  Alternatively, you can spend a little more and purchase a kit with more accessories.



 
Adventures in Raspberry Pi
by Carrie Anne Philbin

Even if your kids don't have an ounce of computer geek in them, they can learn to code with Raspberry Pi and this wonderful book.  Written for 11- to 15-year-olds and assuming no prior computing knowledge, this book uses the wildly successful, low-cost, credit-card-sized Raspberry Pi computer to explain fundamental computing concepts. 

Young people will enjoy going through the book's nine fun projects while they learn basic programming and system administration skills, starting with the very basics of how to plug in the board and turn it on.


Each project includes a lively and informative video to reinforce the lessons. It's perfect for young, eager self-learners—your kids can jump in, set up their Raspberry Pi, and go through the lessons on their own.
