  • Support for all Age Groups ( School Children, College Undergraduates, Professional Developers, Programmers)
  • Consumes less than 5w of Power
  • Fun to learn & explore. You are limited by your imagination

How Does the Raspberry Pi Work?

Here’s how it works: An SD card inserted into the slot on the board acts as the hard drive for the Raspberry Pi. It is powered by USB and the video output can be hooked up to a traditional RCA TV set, a more modern monitor, or even a TV using the HDMI port.
