Raspberry Pi Zero: Seriously, a computer for $5?

Welcome to Raspberry Pi Geek. The long winter nights are upon us in the northern hemisphere, so you won’t find a better time than now to start a project with your favorite nanocomputer – and maybe even your favorite people. We’ve been privileged to print the father-daughter-daughter projects in the Kid Stop section by Pete, Brooke, and Leah Metcalfe (check out their missile launcher in this issue), and we’d like to see other parent – child/ teen team projects. If you are a young person who’s created a cool project with a small-board computer – either alone or teamed with an adult – let us know at the email address below.
