My DD has just started secondary school and has been put into an 'extension' group for maths and computing. One recommendation from the teacher is that they buy a 'Raspberry Pi' if possible. I have had a look on line and they are £25, so doable for a birthday present (next week) - but what would she do with it? Not many details on-line apart from that it helps children learn to programme.
Has anyone got any experience of these and are they challenging for a bright child?
