Raspberry Pi is a most advanced credit card sized computer with all the features that a computer is supposed to have with a feature which can turn any TV into smart TV. We can browse, play games and develop mobile or desktop applications with a system configured with raspberry pi. Even it can be configured with camera, printer and other peripherals that our computer system supports and needs. Additionally the GPIO (general Purpose Input output) pins given can be used to connects sensors to detects physical world and take decision for a automated environment. These all things can be done with a basic knowledge of python or c.  We designed this course module suitable for school students to share the sufficient level of technicality required to have fun with raspberry pi and create much interesting projects related to computer science and information technology.


Can access computer system and make use of internet and perform search over Google. Raspberrypi
