Event description

Description

HURRY, Only one spot left!

Meeting during Term 3, weekly, for 5 Thursdays after school 4-5 pm starting 3 August 2017. (Depending upon demand and venue availability, other courses shall be scheduled.)

For ages 10+ learn STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics - using a Raspberry Pi single-board computer to gain a basic understanding of ‘Physical Computing'. Physical Computing means building interactive physical systems by the use of software and hardware that can sense and respond to the real world.

STEM-Learn with a Raspberry Pi by wiring simple input/output electronic circuits and then writing interface programs using the Scratch, Python, and other applications. In this hands-on course we go from an introduction of and power-up of a Raspberry Pi, its' operating system (Linux Raspian), to the user applications, programming, wiring simple circuits and communicating with those circuits (real-world); as well as interfacing programming to Minecraft™ Pi (a virtual-world). Learn the basic components of the computers we see everywhere in our every day devices.

Pre-requests: None. {Optionally, bring your own USB memory stick to for own back-ups, but not required.}

Objective:

To Have Fun! Play with the basic concepts behind our devices we use every day. Learn by doing fun hands-on physical computing activities to understand our human relationship to the digital world.

Cost: $259

What do you get?

At the end you may take home and keep your own Raspberry Pi single-board computer (model B+ or 2) including the OS and software applications: Word processing, spreadsheet, Scratch and Python programming languages, games, and more.
