Description

Explore the world of computer programming with the Raspberry Pi - 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. The Raspberry Pi has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects. During this camp you will work with computer scientists to build your raspberry pi and design multiple small projects that utilize it. On the final day of camp there will be a project showcase for parents (Friday at 11:45 am) AND you will take your Raspberry Pi home with you.

Activities: Create your own computer game in Scratch, program your own song using Sonic Pi, and make your own website on your Raspberry Pi

Highlight: Take the knowledge you've gained along with your Raspberry Pi and electronic kit home after your parent presentation to continue the programming fun at home!
