CREATIVE PROJECTS WITH RASPBERRY PI by Kirsten Kearney and Will Freeman.  New York, Abrams Image, 2017.  ISBN 978-14197-25005 hc. $24.99     Gr. 5+     J 004.165    

The fields of Computer Science and Engineering were rejuvenated in 2012 by the introduction of Raspberry Pi programming language, which promoted hand-on technology projects in elementary schools, middle schools and high schools.  Research showed that the art of programming grew in popularity when real life projects were used to illustrate the relationship between machinery and computer code.  This book includes the history of Raspberry Pi coding language, as well as 35 projects for students to construct and program. The clearly marked chapters and textbook layout, along with easy-to-follow instructions for each project, make this a must-read for young techies.  The projects range from simple to complex.  Since there's quite a bit of equipment required for each project, an adult's assistance would be recommended for anyone younger that 12.
