Carrie Anne Philbin’s Adventures in Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

adventuresinraspberrypi

Adventures in Raspberry Pi, a new book from pioneering computing teacher Carrie Anne Philbin, is aimed at 11-15 year olds interested in learning computing. raspberrypi.org writes:

Carrie Anne says that this book is for any young person who’s interested in making things happen using computing. Inside, you’ll find nine projects (alongside stickers, achievements and more), which will take you from a standing start to a point where you’ll be breezing through projects like writing your first programs, shaping the Minecraft universe using Minecraft Pi, designing and building your own role-playing game, writing and playing your own music…and making electronic switches out of marshmallows.

It’s a beautifully produced book, full of ideas and clear direction, with a real sense of Carrie Anne’s personality jumping off every page. These projects come out of real activities Carrie Anne has worked through with real kids; they’re tried and tested – and they’re fun, too. You’ll find hints and tips to help you along the way. There’s plenty of extra material online to supplement the book, along with lots of recommendations for further reading.
