Kano Computer

Kano is a DIY "computer kit designed to help people of all ages assemble a computer from scratch, and learn basic coding skills."  The Kano computer is run by a Raspberry Pi.  Students can build their own computer, then download apps, and create programs on the Kano.  The ITC has 10 computers available for checkout.  Please note that they do not come with monitors, so you will need to connect the computer to a monitor using an HDMI cable.
