Little Bytes of Pi
If you have not heard about the Raspberry Pi, then you should read about it here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/about . This small, inexpensive computer was designed by the nonprofit Raspberry Pi Foundation as a tool to make computer programming accessible and affordable for kids.
We were inspired by the incredible things people are doing with these small computers, so we started Little Bytes of Pi in an effort to make better use of our spare time. We work on projects that interest us to create resources for educators and hobby scientists.
Stuff for Little Bytes
Robotics for Kids
Robotics is a great way for kids to learn how to program, because the results of your code move around in the physical world, and you can see the behavior of your if statements, for loops, and variable conditions with your own two eyes.
We are playing with a few different robotic toys to learn about programming in different languages including C# on Windows and Linux, and Objective C on iOS.
