Description

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. The Build HAT is compatible with the most recent generation of LEGO® Technic™ motors, and with sensors included in the LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime portfolio.

What is a Raspberry Pi Build HAT?

The Raspberry Pi Build HAT is an add-on board designed in collaboration with LEGO® Education to make it easy to control LEGO® TechnicTM motors and sensors with Raspberry Pi computers. It provides four connectors for LEGO Technic motors and sensors from the LEGO® Education SPIKETM 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, including — with the addition of a ribbon cable or other extension device — Raspberry Pi 400. Connected LEGO Technic devices can easily be controlled in Python, alongside standard Raspberry Pi accessories such as a camera module. 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.

The LEGO® Education SPIKETM Prime set 45678 and SPIKETM Prime Expansion set 45681, available separately from LEGO Education resellers, include a collection of useful elements supported by the Build HAT.
