Time to buy meaningful gifts for our STEM-loving girls!
Here are our kid-vetted, STEM teacher-approved, holiday, birthday, and just about any day gift list for your STEM-girl!
Little Bits has found a way to keep kids coding and engineering with their project-based electronic kit that connects coding, circuits and her world! “Rule Your Room” has your girl building and tinkering where she wants to be; In her room! She can protect her stuff from her pesky little sister or brother, create a “keep out” sign, and so much more!
A Raspberry Pi Kit is the perfect choice for that gal who wants to learn to code and get started NOW! It’s a great option that requires a USB cord, an HDMI cord, CAT5/6 (if you want internet)- you can also connect via wi-fi, and of course a monitor, keyboard and mouse…so it’s kinda like just add water and insta-computer. Yes, that’s really it. The whole computer is smaller than a 3×5 index card, no joke! It is pre-programmed with old-school games run on python, but has a platform for coding build in and ready for your STEM-crazy girl ready to take over the world and code away! Ok, and let me tell you when you add the kit, it can do stuff like water your plants, send you a text to say it did and tell you when it needs more!The Kit option adds in all the LED lights, cords and other “fun doo-dads” that make it more than just a programmable computer. It turns it into an action machine that can control objects outside of itself. And, because most of the stuff is so tiny, the kits themselves are super duper cheap!
So, what’s the difference between the Arduino and Raspberry Pi?
Great question! One is really like a simple processor that can only do a single task over and over (Arduino). The other (Raspberry Pi) is a complex computer that can run multiple tasks.
