Raspberry Pi had an epic year. Congrats Pi folks from the Adafruit team, good work, and doing good. Here are some stats –

  • To date, we’ve sold over 17 million Raspberry Pi computers and the past three months have all seen record breaking volumes.
  • Over 200,000 young people now take part in our clubs and programmes every week.
  • The merger with CoderDojo has been a huge success. Code Club continues to go from strength to strength.
  • We had over 2,400 entries to our latest Astro Pi competition.
  • Since launching our first online training courses in January, over 45,000 educators have taken part.
  • Our new projects platform went live and has already seen 2 million users.
  • We’ve launched two new magazines: Hello World (for educators) and Hackspace (for makers).

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
