What are they?

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard.

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software.

What can I do with them?

Raspberry Pi is essentially a tiny computer which can be used for various electronics projects. It can emulate many of the things that your desktop PC already does such as create spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It can also be used to control robotics, set up mini servers, setup home automation tasks, or even learn coding basics.

Arduino boards can help users create a number of interactive projects. Arduino boards can sense their environment by receiving inputs from many sensors, and affects its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators.

Whether you’re an artist, designer, hobbyist, researcher, or anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments, Arduino boards and the Raspberry Pi can help incorporate technology into your project.
