What a fantastic offering from the Raspberry Pi Foundation! If you're looking for a fun, interactive way to introduce your kids to coding and digital making, then pull up a chair or two, make sure your Raspberry Pi is set up, and start making!

Note: if you're looking for some good resources on getting started with Raspberry Pi, our guide to the best beginner's books for Raspberry Pi is a great place to start!

Each Thursday, the Raspberry Pi Foundation live streams its "Digital Making at Home" series on youtube at 3:30 PST / 6:30 EST.

On the live stream, the team (and sometimes guest/s) introduce young people to new topics like GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces), HTML, Scratch, Graphics, Retrogames, and more - through activities that often feel a bit like retro games themselves. One live stream, for example, introduced kids to game-making through the retro-like game, BBQ Dad! (Did you know you can control a grill with a Raspberry Pi in real life? Cool, right?!)

For more information and an up-to-date schedule, visit the "Digital Making at Home" homepage.

Screen upside down? No problem.

So you've just finished setting up your Raspberry Pi touchscreen, and it's upside-down.
