NEW PRODUCT – Companion Parts Pack for Adventures in Raspberry Pi


This is a companion kit for the wildly popular Adventures in Raspberry Pi book by Carrie Ann Philbin. The book’s a great beginner guide to the Raspberry Pi and this kit includes the electronic components to do the interactive projects in the second half of the book. No soldering is required! It’s plug and play and easy to try out the electronics adventures even if you’ve never done electronics in your life.

This kit includes:

This is just the electonics parts pack, and is designed for people who already have Philbin’s book and a Raspberry Pi Model B+! We don’t include a Raspberry Pi Model B+, computer add-on pack, pi case, Raspbian SD card, or the Philbin book in this pack but you can pick all of them up in the Adafruit store. The book was written for the Model B which has been now been updated to the B+. All of these projects will work with BOTH the model B or model B+ and we’ve included a diagram on how to use the model B+ since the book primarily focuses on the Model B. If you are still using a Raspberry Pi Model B, you may want to also pick up a model B card.

Carrie Anne Philbin is a high school computing teacher who advises the U.K. government on the revised ICT curriculum. She teaches 11 to 15 year olds programming and system administration skills using the Raspberry Pi. Her book coupled with our add-on pack is a great way to get any kid started!

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
