NEW PRODUCTS – Kano Computer Kit with Raspberry Pi 3 / Kano Screen Kit


Have you ever wanted to build your own computer but never knew where to begin? Now’s your chance! With the award-winning Kano Computer Kit and Screen Kit you’ll not only build your own powerful computer, you’ll bring it to life!

With simple steps and playful projects you’ll learn how to code art, music, apps, games and more. It’s a fun way to make, play, and express your creativity with technology — built and coded by you. Note — the computer and the screen are sold separately.

Kano’s Computer Kit comes with 10 plug-and-play components including: a Raspberry Pi 3, a wireless keyboard, a DIY speaker, a custom case, power and HDMI cables, memory card, a USB power supply, an illustrated story book and 4 sheets of stickers and case cards. No prior knowledge is needed, and the Kano Book — a step-by-step storybook — is provided to help guide you.

The kit provides an introduction to various programming languages including Python and Javascript. Kids can learn Python through “Kano Blocks” by making Minecraft and Pong, and can dive into the world of Linux by going on a Terminal Quest and by making Snake.

Kano is being used in hundreds of schools across the US, UK, EU, Asia and even parts of Africa. Check out Kano’s educator’s page!

Some children between 6-8 years old may require parental supervision when reading the Kano Book and assembling the Computer and Screen Kit components. Children 8 years and older are proven to be quite self sufficient on their Kano!
