Turn your kid into a tech wiz with Kano's 2018 Computer Kit at a new low price

Kano's 2018 Computer Kit (opens in new tab) is extremely cool. It's a great way to teach a kid, or anyone really, how to build a computer and what components go into building a computer, and now you can pick one up for only $49.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab). This kit has never been priced lower there; it normally sells around $90 on average and was priced as high as $130 earlier this year.

Kano's Computer Kit bundles a Raspberry Pi 3 processor with several essential components and teaches you step-by-step on how to put them all together properly. Afterward, it can teach basic programming languages like Python.

There are no technical skills required for this set because everything is taught to you. Not only that, but once it is built it'll teach some basic programming languages like Python. You start with a Raspberry Pi 3 processor, case, keyboard, speakers, and the kit gives simple, step-by-step instructions on how to put it all together and get the circuitry working properly.

Once it's working, the Kit provides hours of coding challenges to learn the basics of Python, Javascript and Linux. You can even access the Kano operating system to play some of the free apps or games like Minecraft.

This kit doesn't come with a screen but it can connect to literally anything with an HDMI port. You can get Kano's Screen Kit (opens in new tab) and make your own HD screen to use with the computer kit if you just haven't learned enough already.
