Introduction to Raspberry Pi
June 2, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$60
Get started with Raspberry Pi. In this 2-night workshop, we will help kids build their own computers, using Raspberry Pi 3 kits. Class will meet 6:30-8:00pm on two Thursdays, June 2 & 9. We will cover the following topics:
- Putting the kit together
- Installing the operating system (Raspbian)
- Using the command line
- Installing software
- Updating and upgrading
- Using Scratch and Sonic Pi
Important: This class is designed for kids in Grades 4 through 8. Younger kids may attend with a parent, mostly to help with typing. Older kids may also attend, but might find the pace a bit slow.
The cost of this class does not include the required hardware. Each student must bring the following with them to each session of class. Suggestions are listed below each item:
- Raspberry Pi kit
- HDMI display, with power cable, unless it comes with your kit
- USB keyboard & mouse, unless it comes with your kit
- Small speaker or headphones (3.5mm)
We made a Wish List on Amazon, with the components we prefer, to make it easier for you to purchase everything at once. The cost will be approximately $175. If you cannot get the display in time for the class, that’s OK! Just bring any HDMI display with you for class. We have a few kids can use here at the office, but might not have enough for every child.
