The Raspberry Pi Foundation, a UK-based charity, is on a mission to help young people reach their full potential through the world of computing and digital technologies. Their vision is to ensure that every young person gains the skills, confidence, and knowledge to use computers effectively, solve problems, and express creativity in their work, personal life, and community. They also aim to instill a deep understanding of the societal and ethical aspects of technology, enabling critical evaluation and positive use. Additionally, the Foundation seeks to cultivate a mindset that embraces technological change with confidence, encouraging continuous learning about emerging technologies.
Everything you need to get up and running with the new Raspberry Pi 4! This kit includes a Raspberry Pi 4 (8GB model), 16GB MicroSD card with NOOBS software, colour coded HDMI lead, case and USB-C power supply.
The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the best performing single-board computer to date from the Raspberry Pi Foundation that has undergone a huge upgrade in comparison to all previous models. For the first time, the Pi 4 B is available in different memory versions, this model has 4GB with true Gigabit Ethernet, USB-C power, USB 3.0, dual 4k display output and a quad-core CPU to rival the performance of an entry-level desktop PC. It’s a truly powerful and capable computer in a small, affordable package.
The Raspberry Pi 4 has received a performance boost to 1.5GHz with an upgraded quad-core processor.
The fanless, energy-efficient Raspberry Pi runs silently and uses far less power than other computers.
Memory size of 4GB to enable more complicated processes to run efficiently.
Dual micro-HDMI ports enables a dual screen set-up.
Up to 4K resolution video decoding.
Raspberry Pi 4 has upgraded USB capacity: along with two USB 2 ports you'll find two USB 3 ports, which can transfer data up to ten times faster.
Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi - an improvement on the previous Bluetooth 4.2 on the Pi 3 B+
Raspberry Pi 4 comes with Gigabit Ethernet, along with onboard wireless networking and Bluetooth.
Power is supplied via USB-C – Raspberry Pi 3 was powered via micro-USB at 5.1v
Raspberry Pi 400 featuring a quad-core 64-bit processor, wireless networking, dual-display output and 4K video playback, Raspberry Pi 400 is a complete personal computer, built into a compact keyboard. Inside is a modified Pi4-4GB mated to a huge heat sink for excellent passive cooling! All I/O connectors are along the back of the keyboard, including GPIO. Raspberry Pi 400 is ideal for surfing the web, creating and editing documents, watching videos, and learning to program using the Raspberry Pi OS desktop environment. It's also an outstanding value as it includes the Pi4 and keyboard that also functions as a case.

The Raspberry Pi Sense HAT is attached on top of the Raspberry Pi via the 40 GPIO pins. The Sense HAT has several integrated circuit based sensors that can be used for many different types of experiments, applications, and even games.
Gyroscope - angular rate sensor: ±245/500/2000dps
Accelerometer - Linear acceleration sensor: ±-2/4/8/16 g
The official Raspberry Pi USB-C power supply (PSU) supplies your Pi 4 with 5.1V at 3A.
Features IRE/UK 3-pin plug High-quality power supply Compatible with Raspberry Pi 4 1.5m 18 AWG captive cable with USB-C output connector 5.1V / 3.0A DC output 96-264Vac operating input range Short circuit, overcurrent and over temperature protection
These microSD cards have Raspberry Pi OS pre-installed and come with a full size official SD adaptor.
These quality microSD cards are pre-programmed at Pi Towers with the official Raspberry Pi operating system, so you can pop one in to your Raspberry Pi and get going in a flash. Perfect for Raspberry Pi beginners and convenient for those with more experience!
⚠ Note that the microSD cards come with a full size SD adaptor. Insert your thumbnail in the indentation along the bottom edge, underneath the Raspberry logo. You should then be able to slide out the microSD card.
This 175mm long GPIO (general purpose input/output) ribbon cable lets you extend the reach of your Raspberry Pi's pins, bridging them out to other boards or PCBs. The Raspberry Pi's GPIO can be used for all sorts: twiddling pins on or off, providing 3.3V or 5V power, communicating with I2C or SPI devices, and much more. This cable gives you a bit more flexibility in where you route those signals.
175mm long x 51mm wide
40 wires, 2x20 pin female connectors
Pin 1 is marked by the white/pink wire
Note: Be careful to connect this cable to your board the correct way around. You can't use it with a male header to connect to a HAT's female header, as the pins will be mirrored. You'll risk damaging both your board and your Raspberry Pi if you connect the cable incorrectly so, if in doubt, check the order of the pins on the connector with a multimeter before connecting things up!
The Raspberry Pi Camera Module v2 is a high quality 8 megapixel Sony IMX219 image sensor custom designed add-on board for Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens. It's capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also supports 1080p30, 720p60 and 640x480p60/90 video.
It attaches to Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board upper surface and uses the dedicated CSI interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The board itself is tiny, at around 25mm x 23mm x 9mm. It also weighs just over 3g, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and weight are important. It connects to Raspberry Pi by way of a short ribbon cable.
