  • General Admission (non member)


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
