Mathematica and the Wolfram Language is included with Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi. The Wolfram Language is particularly useful in partnership with the Sense HAT, which features an LED array and a collection of environmental and movement sensors.
Ever since the partnership between the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Wolfram Research began, people have been excited to discover – and are often surprised by – the power and ease of using the Wolfram Language and Mathematica on a Raspberry Pi.
These give users the ability to read in data from the physical world and display or manipulate it in the Wolfram Language with simple, one-line functions. With the release of Mathematica 11, Wolfram Research has been working hard to refine functions that connect to the Sense HAT, allowing Mathematica to communicate directly with the device.

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.
