Join us and learn the basics of programming and coding using the Raspberry Pi at our STEM Raspberry Pi summer camp! Raspberry Pi is a fully functional computer about the size of a deck of cards. This $35 computer was designed by a non-profit to teach basic computer science in schools and developing countries. Since its release in 2006, the Raspberry Pi has become a mainstay in education circles and Maker projects. At entry-level camp, participants will learn the basics of programming the Raspberry Pi and will learn how to use peripherals (sensors, cameras, etc) to create their own projects. We will have Raspberry Pi kits available to purchase but campers are more than welcome to bring their own.
