• Code & Electronics w/Raspberry Pi

Grades 3-8

Tuesday 4:00 - 5:00 pm

 

PREREQUISITE: Student must know Scratch programming, or have completed 'begin to code' or should take individual classes to be brought up to speed to take this class.

 

Raspberry Pi is the latest in the tiny computing and Internet-of-Things craze - a mini computer that kids can build themselves. Students will  learn the fundamental basics of setting up Raspberry Pi and using the built in tools, including the Python programming environment. Students develop knowledge of simple electronics,computing and writing program using the Python programming language. They  will apply new-found knowledge to a series of challenges, including controlling an LED , using a button press to control a circuit, and making a game using a button and an LED. In addition, the students will learn how the Raspberry Pi interacts with external modules using the GPIO interface. The PiGlow is an external module that provides 18 individually controllable LEDs. Students will identify and then program the LEDs to create their own customized light patterns. Students can create cool light displays that express their skills with code and logic.

 

Students will learn:

  • learn how to boot and wire up a Raspberry Pi.
  • coding with a range of languages from Scratch to python
  • Design and build electronic circuits
  • Program the Pi with Scratch and Python
