New workshops just added, get your seats while there’s still time!

Introduction to Raspberry Pi – Saturday, April 23rd / 1:00pm – 5:00pm / $40 – $80

Go from “I’ve heard of a Raspberry Pi” to understanding how this pocket sized computer can be used to make your project come to life. Students will learn the basics of the Python programming language so they can access the Pi’s general purpose I/O pins. Everyone will also go home with a 3D printed case to keep their Pi safe.

2 Class Options:

$40 – Includes Project Hardware, 8 GB MicroSD, Power Cable, 3D Printed Case (Bring your Own Raspberry Pi Model A+, Model B, Model B+, Model 2B)

Students are required to bring their own Raspberry Pi ModelA+, Model B, Model B+ OR Model 2B, and a  display device with Wi-Fi. Can be a smartphone / tablet / iPhone / iPad / Android device / laptop.

$80 – Includes Project Hardware, 8 GB MicroSD, Power Cable, 3D Printed Case (We’ll provide you with a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B)

Students are required to bring a display device with Wi-Fi. Can be a smartphone / tablet / iPhone / iPad / Android device / laptop.

Please note that space in our workshop is limited, and 1 ticket = 1 attendee seat.  Participants must be 14 or older; under 18 requires a parent or guardian.

Raspberry Pi Joke Machine – Sunday, April 24th / 1:00pm – 5:00pm / $60

This intermediate level Raspberry Pi workshop takes you through the steps of turning your Pi 2 into a “joke machine” by combining it with the PiFace LCD display module and the Python programming language. The joke machine isn’t just for laughs. You will leave the workshop with new programming skills & your Pi 2 will be more capable than ever before – protected inside a 3D printed case designed especially for your new hardware.

Students are required to bring their own Raspberry Pi 2, Model B, and a tablet or laptop with Wi-Fi.  A smartphone is insufficient for this level of programming and typing.

Please note that space in our workshop is limited, and 1 ticket = 1 attendee seat.  Participants must be 14 or older; under 18 requires a parent or guardian.
