I want to build robots with Raspberry Pi

Yeah, it’s me. Your everyday, average new guy. I’m 14 and wanting to really dig into the robotics community. The only experience I’ve had in robotics is with the FIRST community (Specifically the FIRST Tech Challenge), but its left me wanting more. What I want is to build a robot from the ground up using the power of Raspberry Pi, but I don’t know where to start.

What do I need? Are there special programs that I need to send the proper voltages and signals to external devices? (Servos, motors, sensors, etc.) What about hardware? Are there specific tools I’m missing for the Raspberry Pi board itself that I need?

In the end I was just wondering if somebody could give me some info, or point me to where I can find some.
