RPI GPIO Connect Essentials Pack for beginners

We have put together an essentials kit for Raspberry Pi GPIO. The kit as well as the content is all based on the Pi Foundations Project club, which is specifically designed to help teach beginners of all ages to code and to build circuits from the very first try.

We are adding a range of kits to cater for beginners to start connecting their Raspberry Pi’s with the physical world. While exploring the Projects available we have found no use for the existing GPIO kits we had, so we decided to launch a new kits range to cater specially for everyone new in physical computing that don’t always know where to start and what to buy.

This kit was based on the projects page of the foundations website. Here we found amazingly interesting things to play with and have tons of fun….

In the introductions project  we found a really great tutorial for starting to get to know all the different components available for the Raspberry Pi. In these kits we have added everything needed to complete this and most of the other project available on this resource.

We have put together a complete essentials kit for Raspberry Pi GPIO. The kit as well as the content is all based on the Pi Foundations Project club, which is specifically designed to help teach beginners of all ages to code and to build circuits from the very first try.

What you will need:

        OR

Below are the projects you will be able to complete with this kit.

The foundations projects page has so many projects that navigating the pages could be a little bit of an adventure all on its own. So we have done some of the search work for you just to get you started:


In our 2nd add-on pack you will be able to do the below as well.


Going through all the other projects listed there you will need some more goodies. We are working on creating add-on kits to enable you to complete more of the projects.

Below are some of the items you might need to complete all the projects.


 These with one of our Robotics kits  will allow you to play in every project available and give you all the knowledge of physical computing needed to start building your own robot! Or at the very least keep the little ones busy for quite a long time with minimal other resources needed.
