Very Cool

I am really excited to finally get my hands on one of these little ones. My kids and I have built several projects with my full sized ones and I want to teach a class next year using Raspi's.

Pi Zero W

Hi droops, you'll be lucky to be able to use the pi zeroW to teach a class as at the moment you can still only order them one at a time :-(
