Are you more of a visual learner? Have you ever wanted to build your own touchscreen tablet but never knew where to begin? Now’s your chance! With the award-winning Kano Computer Kit Touch and storybook, you’ll not only build your own powerful computer, you’ll understand how you brought it to life!
Kano’s kit comes with a Raspberry Pi 3, a capacitive touchscreen, wireless keyboard, custom case, powerand HDMI cables, memory card, a USB power supply, an illustrated storybook, and 4 sheets of stickers and case cards. Everything is included so you can start with just the parts in the box
No technical wizardry is required, and the Kano Book — a step-by-step storybook — is provided to help guide you. Its easy-to-use visual coding environment helps anyone make and play with it.
Kano is used in hundreds of schools across the US, UK, EU, Africa, and Asia. Check out Kano’s educators’ page! The Kano Computer Kit Touch also comes with Kano World, a global community that welcomes and inspires folks of all skill levels.
Some children between 6-8 years old may require supervision when reading the Kano Book and assembling the Computer Kit components. Children 8 years and older are proven to be quite self sufficient on their Kano!
Note: A touchscreen cable to connect the USB board to the Raspberry Pi is also included in the kit and is not shown in the parts image above
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
