Raspberry Pi

Our Makerspace kids have been messing around with our new Raspberry Pi 3.
We have a student that brought a Raspberry Pi and we have one, so there is lots to explore. 
These are amazing little machines!

We needed a Mini-SD card, power supply cord, ethernet cord and HDMI cord. 

One of the first things they did is download the Raspbian operating system 
They also are exploring operating systems:
- Midori is a lightweight browser that works nice
- Light Firefox is supposed to work as well
PI installs the OS on the Raspberry Pi
The kids love messing around, installing and re-installing operating system and exploring things.  
It needed a case, so they printed one on the 3D printer. Nice
