    The thesis discusses the projects which might encourage primary school children in the third triad to programme when the programming language Scratch becomes too restrictive. Lately, the answer has been to use proper programming languages and microcontrollers, which can be connected to camera, sensors and other devices. With this, children learn the basics of electrical engineering, and are only one step away from creating their own game or a small project. The thesis consists of assignments, which with the microcontroller Raspberry Pi and the game Minecraft in a fun way lead children and other beginners to programme with Python. The language is suitable for learning programming as it offers the right amount of challenge, and has a simple structure and a clear defined syntax.
