The Raspberry Pi is a computer, adopted by an eager community of hackers and makers. It powers projects around the world and in space. At last count, since 2012, more than 12.5 million Raspberry Pis have been sold around the world.

Learning how to create with digital technology helps people participate in an increasingly digital world.
