The Raspberry Pi Build HAT features Raspberry Pi’s own RP2040 microcontroller and can be simply attached to your Raspberry Pi for extra functionality and to be able to build creative computing projects with LEGO® Education products.
The Raspberry Pi Build HAT is an add-on board for Raspberry Pi board, designed to add extra functionality as well as to add the capability to make your Raspberry Pi compatible with the most recent generation of LEGO® Education and LEGO® Technic™ motors to bring your most creative programming projects to life.
The Raspberry Pi Build HAT is an amazing tool to get started with programming for beginners that enables students, teachers and makers to have an engaging learning experience.
The Raspberry Pi Build HAT is part of a collaboration between LEGO® Education and Raspberry Pi. Introducing coding for kids into your learning plan is now fun and exciting!
The Raspberry Pi Build HAT provides four connectors for LEGO Technic motors and sensors from the LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Portfolio. The available sensors include a distance sensor, a colour sensor, and a force sensor. The angular motors come in a range of sizes and include integrated encoders that can be queried to find their position.
The Build HAT fits all Raspberry Pi computers with a 40-pin GPIO header.
With the addition of a ribbon cable or other extension device the HAT also fits the Raspberry Pi 400. Connected LEGO Technic devices can easily be controlled in Python, alongside standard Raspberry Pi accessories such as a camera module.
In order to drive motors, your Raspberry Pi and Build HAT will need an external 7.5v power supply.
For best results, use the official Raspberry Pi Build HAT power supply. The Raspberry Pi Build HAT power supply, available separately, is designed to power both the Build HAT and Raspberry Pi computer along with all connected LEGO Technic devices.
Challenge your imagination and use the Raspberry Pi Build HAT with the most recent generation of LEGO® Technic™ motors.
Make your learning experience even more fun! The Raspberry Pi Build HAT is compatible with the most recent generation of LEGO® Technic™ motors, with sensors included in the LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime portfolio.
You can easily attach Raspberry Pi computers to the LEGO® building system, using the LEGO® Maker Plate, available separately from LEGO® retailers.
Engage in a fun and creative programming learning experience.
If you’re wondering how to get started with coding, the Raspberry Pi Build HAT will help you learn to code and engage in fun and creative activities. The Raspberry Pi Build HAT combines the power of Raspberry Pi computing with LEGO® hands-on learning to enable a fun and creative learning experience for students, teachers and makers.
You can power the Build HAT with the Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller.
The Build HAT is the second Raspberry Pi product, after Raspberry Pi Pico, to be powered by the Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller.
