The perfect introduction to programming and computer logic
Raspberry Pi Workshop
What tools will we use
"The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. What’s more, the Raspberry Pi has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras." Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Unlock the potential of the raspberry Pi, explore using scratch and python to interact with the GPIO pins and light up LEDS, spin motors and detect button presses. Design your own gadet or video game that can interact with the physical world.
