Raspberry Pi

A small, simple computer has been developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It is a basic computer device and the user connects up the components themselves i.e. mouse, keyboard, and can write their own programming codes. It is targeted towards children with the aim that it will help them better understand computing. Nowadays computers do everything for us without us having to make sense of what is actually going on beneath the surface; something that has become all too apparent to us as a research group, as we try to get our heads around the technical process of 70s computing.
