CamJam, in association with and through the The Pi Hut, sells electronics kits to support the goals of the Jam. Primarily using the Python language, these kits help you to get started with physical computing. Starting at just £5, there are three kits available from The Pi Hut:
- Starter - a basic kit to help you light up LEDs, detect button presses and sound a buzzer working towards a Traffic Light project.
- Sensors - our second kit featuring sensors to detect movement, light and temperature.
- Robotics - build your very own remote control and autonomous robot.
All the kits are accompanied by downloadable worksheets which not only tell you what to do but why you should and how it works!
