Science Buddies


Exciting New Kit Blends Computer Science, Electronics, and Creativity 


With the new Raspberry Pi Projects Kit from the Science Buddies Store, students can set up their own Raspberry Pi and then create interactive projects using Scratch, circuitry, and a variety of sensors. With a series of 8 creative projects, students can have fun experimenting with their Raspberry Pi as they build and program a carnival game, a set of drums, a musical keyboard, a light-up piece of art, an interactive toy puppet, and more!

Check the Creative Raspberry Pi Projects for Beginners page to learn more about the kit, the activities, and to watch a video that showcases the series of activities.



The Raspberry Pi Projects Kit was developed with support from Symantec,

Best Buy Foundation, Raspberry Pi Foundation, Oracle Foundation, and Google RISE.
