Support the CrowPi2 for $ 170 and receive a laptop dedicated to STEM education

The Elecrow CrowPi2 Raspberry Pi laptop and STEM education platform is a Kickstarter crowdfunding project that allows you to choose how much you want to invest, and you will be rewarded based on the amount you give. If it's just an interesting project for you and you don't necessarily want a reward, you can give as much as you can afford. But if you really want to try out the CrowPi2, you have to give at least around $ 170 (the rewards are in Hong Kong dollars, so HK $ 1,310). That gives you the CrowPi2 basic set with the laptop, a TF card with the custom system and various motors, connectors and other components. However, it doesn't include the Raspberry Pi motherboard and it costs at least about $ 240. You can support the project with even more to get even higher rewards, including two Deluxe Kits if you go above $ 619.

CrowPi2 Raspberry Pi laptop and STEM education platform

This Raspberry Pi laptop is a tool for learning Python, Scratch, AI and Minecraft. You can also learn technique with sensors, breadboards, lighting and more on the inside. Has independently developed software and 22 sensors and modules.

About $ 170

The CrowPi2 is a very interesting device devoted to STEM learning, both through coding and software and hardware and engineering. You can find the first version, the original CrowPi, for sale on Amazon for around $ 309. So the fact that you can get the full custom kit for the sequel for less than that in this Kickstarter campaign is good value. It will likely sell for much more when it is first released.

The CrowPi2 works as a portable laptop, but mainly focuses on STEM education. You can learn programming languages ‚Äč‚Äčlike Python, Scratch and learn about programming AI or even Minecraft, all in a super easy way. The software has been independently developed especially for this machine. It also includes 22 types of built-in sensors and modules. All you have to do is remove the keyboard and you get access to a variety of sensors, including a breadboard for creating your own lighting circuits.

The laptop's specifications include an 11.6-inch IPS screen with 1080p resolution, the Raspberry Pi 4B (the latest model from Raspberry) and a removable wireless keyboard. So even if you take the keyboard off to play with the modules underneath, you can still type on the computer. It also has a 2MP camera, a built-in microphone, stereo output speakers and more.

This is a great option for children, teens and adults. It will work whether you are a beginner learning for the first time or an expert trying to hone your skills. Choose from over 96 course resources and over 20 projects, including games.
