Pi Day with Science Buddies' Raspberry Pi Projects Kit

What better way to celebrate Pi Day than by making a project using a Raspberry Pi? Our friends at Science Buddies (full disclosure: we're a sponsor) have put together a Raspberry Pi Projects Kit, which includes all of the parts and instructions you need to build a puppet robot, design a video game, make a burglar alarm, and more.

For those who already have a lot of electronic components lying around (and who doesn't these days?), instructions and videos domonstrating how to complete these projects are available on Science Buddies Web site.

This is a great way to get started with making both hardware and software. Give it a try!

Update, March 30, 2016:

Science Buddies has written a blog post about their Raspberry Pi Projects Best Practices document, designed to provide guidance to out-of-school programs working with their Pi Kit. It's a great learning resource, and we're very happy to have helped with its creation.
