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. It has been produced as part of a collaboration between LEGO® Education and Raspberry Pi to make it easy to control LEGO® Technic™ motors and sensors with Raspberry Pi computers to increase the impact and reach of STEAM learning.
It is supported by guided projects from the Raspberry Pi Foundation designed for secondary school students, the Raspberry Pi Build HAT delivers a unique hands-on learning experience that's accessible, engaging, and confidence-building for all students.
The Raspberry Pi Build HAT is compatible with the most recent generation of LEGO® Technic™ motors and sensors from the 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 also supports motors and sensors from the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Robot Inventor kit, as well as most other LEGO® devices that use an LPF2 connector.
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.
This board can also be used with the LEGO® Maker Plate, which allows the user to easily attach Raspberry Pi computers to the LEGO® building system. The LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime Set 45678 and SPIKE™ Prime Expansion Set 45681, available separately from LEGO® Education resellers, include a collection of useful elements supported by the Build HAT. The new, specially designed LEGO® Maker Plate is the first LEGO® element ever designed to connect to something that isn’t another piece of LEGO®.
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 Build HAT has the distinction of being the second Raspberry Pi product, after Raspberry Pi Pico, to be powered by the Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller.
- Supports motors and sensors included in the LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Portfolio, along with those from the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Robot Inventor kit and most other LEGO devices that use an LPF2 connector
- Fits any Raspberry Pi computer with a 40-pin GPIO header (including, with the addition of a ribbon cable or other extension device, Raspberry Pi 400)
- Specially developed Python library supports students and makers to create and learn
- DC power connector: 2.1mm barrel jack, centre positive
- Powers your Raspberry Pi computer (except Raspberry Pi 400) and connected LEGO Technic devices when used with an external 8V ±10% DC power source, such as the Raspberry Pi Build HAT Power Supply, or a 7.5V battery pack
- Onboard Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller manages low-level control of LEGO Technic devices

Who are Raspberry Pi?
Democratising technology – providing access to tools – has been our motivation since the Raspberry Pi project began. By driving down the cost of general-purpose computing to below $5, we’ve opened up the ability for anybody to use computers in projects that used to require prohibitive amounts of capital. Today, with barriers to entry being removed, we see Raspberry Pi computers being used everywhere from interactive museum exhibits and schools to national postal sorting offices and government call centres. Kitchen table businesses all over the world have been able to scale and find success in a way that just wasn’t possible in a world where integrating technology meant spending large sums on laptops and PCs.
Raspberry Pi removes the high entry cost to computing for people across all demographics: while children can benefit from a computing education that previously wasn’t open to them, many adults have also historically been priced out of using computers for enterprise, entertainment and creativity. Raspberry Pi eliminates those barriers.
