1. Raspberry Pi – What is it?
Simply put, a Raspberry Pi is a tiny computer that can be described as a cross between your home computer and your cell phone; but with different types of functionality. We use the Raspberry Pi because it has the ability to take information from sensors and assist in the control of things such as motors, solenoids, and much more! It has a desktop environment you can interact with as you normally would on your home computer so you can browse the internet, play games, and most importantly for us, we can use it to program and run our programs.
