What is a Raspberry Pi?
Raspberry Pi logo (Regarding Tech Bytes III & IV)
“The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing and learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.”
