Youth  will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of coding through creating interactive projects. This class will cover how to get a Raspberry Pi set up, and build a LED Bar sound visualizer.

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit card sized, single board Linux computer. If you have outgrown your Arduino this is a great, cost effective, next step. A Raspberry Pi with Ethernet, Wifi adapter, 4GB storage, enclosure and power supply is less than the cost of an Arduino Uno and Ethernet Shield!

Class size is limited to 4 Students

With this class, you will receive:
  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B - 1GB RAM
  • 8GB SD card
  • Power supply
  • Small Breadboard
  • LED Bar
  • Wires
This class covers:
  • Loading an OS onto your SD card
    (this may be a handout due to time constraints)
  • Raspberry Pi first boot with monitor, keyboard and mouse
  • Basic network configuration via command line
  • Raspberry Pi first boot without monitor, keyboard and mouse
  • Basic file system structure, permissions, and basic commands
  • Updating and installing new software on your Raspberry Pi
  • Build a LED Sound Visualizer 
Minimum age for registration is 10 years old. If you would like your child to join the class and is younger, please email Gaby for more options at
