This is just the electonics parts pack, and is designed for people who already have Philbin's book and a Raspberry Pi Model ! We don't include a Raspberry Pi, computer add-on pack, pi case, Raspbian microSD card, or the Philbin book in this pack but you can pick all of them up in the Adafruit store. 

Carrie Anne Philbin is a high school computing teacher who advises the U.K. government on the revised ICT curriculum.  She teaches 11 to 15 year olds programming and system administration skills using the Raspberry Pi.  Her book coupled with our add-on pack is a great way to get any kid started!
