Quick Overview

BrickPi+ helps you do more with Lego® Mindstorm® by connecting Lego sensors and motors to the Raspberry Pi. The Classroom Kit includes five (5) BrickPi Starter Kits, including the BrickPi+ Base Kit (w/case & battery power pack), microSD Card, Mini Wi-Fi Dongle, Power Supply, Ethernet Cable & Raspberry Pi 3. 


BrickPi is best for someone who already has Lego MINDSTORMS sensors and motors. The BrickPi connects to the Raspberry Pi, and replaces the MINDSTORMS Brick (brain of MINDSTORMS system). If you don’t already have Lego MINDSTORMS, check out our complete robot kit, the GoPiGo.
