Many children like to carry on coding at home with their Raspberry Pi and show you their learning.
The Raspberry Pi can be attached to various accessories or it can be attached with some wizardry software to your laptop.
Hardware Accessories needed for the Raspberry Pi
It can be set up, as we do in the class, with this equipment:
1 a screen (computer monitor or TV screen)
2 keyboard (plug in / wireless)
3 mouse (plug in / wireless)
4 a monitor cable, either a HDMI cord for a new monitor OR a VGA monitor cable for old monitors and a VGA-HDMI adapter
5 internet/ethernet cord or wireless dongle/adapter for internet.
The Raspberry Pi 3 has 4 USB ports for wireless accessories and 1 HDMI port for a monitor cable. Amazon can be useful for parts or better still source them second hand.
