Teachers can submit their cross curricular project ideas by Friday, Dec 12th, and the 5 winning project ideas throughout the Maritime Provinces will be chosen and announced over the weekend. We will then mail out a shiny new piece of tech to those teachers and students to enjoy!
This week’s Challenge is to integrate a Raspberry Pi deluxe starter kit into your classroom’s every day functions, or to integrate it into a project. You could use it’s lights, sensors, breadboard, and onboard operating system for a number of things including robotics, Minecraft, Scratch, or introduce your students to I/O pins using Scratch GPIO! Be creative!
An exclusive kit from CanaKit which includes the latest edition of the Raspberry Pi family – The Raspberry Pi B+ (B Plus) and everything you need to get up and running within minutes in the exciting world of Raspberry Pi!
The Ultimate Starter Kit version includes everything in the standard Starter Kit plus all the components needed to start using the GPIO port of the Raspberry Pi B+.
The kit includes a Raspberry Pi B+ case as well as the Raspberry Pi recommended Samsung 8 GB SD Card pre-loaded with “NOOBS” (New Out Of Box Software). Just connect and be up and running immediately!
The kit also includes a 2.5A / 5V USB power supply specially designed and tested for the power hungry Raspberry Pi B+. The included 2.5A adapter comes with a 5-foot cable and can power the B+ and other USB accessories (such as most portable hard drives) without requiring an external powered USB hub.
