Hi secretgarden -

It depends on what exactly you're looking for. We have a Raspberry Pi Projects Kit that teaches students programming with Scratch (a graphical programming language) and includes a bunch of circuit parts. This is a good option for someone new to programming who wants to build interactive circuit projects:

If that's not what you're looking for (e.g. you'd rather jump right into more advanced programming languages like Python, or you just want to focus on programming and not circuits) then there are a lot of other starter kits available out there. You could check out the official Raspberry Pi website for recommendations: https://www.raspberrypi.org/

Hope that helps,

Ben
