We've teamed up with Matt from the Raspberry Pi for Beginners YouTube Channel to create a YouTube Workshop Kit for the Raspberry Pi. Matt has created a series of 9 step by step tutorials videos, which will take you from creating your very first programme (Hello World), to wiring in LEDs, buttons and buzzers, to more complex component coding with a digital thermometer, light dependent resistor and motion sensor. All YouTube videos feature easy to follow instructions, and come complete with downloadable supporting material, including wiring diagrams, tutorial sheets and code.
To compliment the YouTube series, we've put together the Raspberry Pi YouTube workshop kit which includes all the components necessary to follow the video guides from start to finish. The kit consists of basic prototyping components such as a breadboard and jumper wires, and includes a range of components including LEDs, resistors, capacitors, a button and buzzer, a thermistor, photoresistor and PIR sensor.
The kit, videos and supporting material were designed for anyone looking to get started hacking with their Pi's, and we've also had a lot of interest from educators looking for a classroom friendly introductory platform. Matt's created complimentary worksheets, and the nature of the videos means they can be utilised within a classroom or independently.
You can purchase the kit, and download worksheets & circuit diagrams from the ModMyPi website below. If you're looking for a "classroom size" purchase e.g. 15+, then ping us an email email@example.com as we're always happy to offer educational discounts.
