It is our goal to help youth experience the excitement that drives Information Technology. These open source designed circuit boards can ignite youth’s understanding of and enthusiasm for IT and help them understand how the computers that we now all take for granted actually operate.
The RPi is a low-cost device that improves hardware understanding at the pre-college level. It has become the go-to device for makers and electronics enthusiasts for projects that require more than a basic micro-controller.
