CrowPi2 – Raspberry Pi Laptop & STEM Platform
Elecrow, a brand well known for STEM gadgets, has come up with a new product called CrowPi2. It is an upgrade to the original CrowPi and is specifically designed for kids who are keen to explore electronics and learn coding skills. With CrowPi2, you will get all the benefits of the Raspberry Pi in a compact laptop. It has many exciting features, such as a removable keyboard and an 11.6-inch screen with an HD display. It allows for the digital world exploration, which is easier with the inbuilt tutorial.
Besides education, you can use it for entertainment to stream movies or play games with the kids. I love the outdoor charging capabilities, which makes it portable. You also can purchase the CrowPi2 laptop without a Raspberry if you wish to add your own.
CrowPi2 lets you master programming skills in an interactive manner
This STEM gadget gives you access to all the educational material through the STEM educator. Other tutorials include Scratch, adaptation, 32 python programming courses, and the popular Minecraft game. Take your understanding of Voice and Face recognition a notch higher with the CrowPi2.

To conclude, CrowPi2 is a good all in one kit for students who love to explore the field of electronics.
