Beginning Raspberry Pi Workshop #3

On this series of 3 workshops, workshop #3 is our last class and will further the concepts introduced to you on workshop #1 and #2 

What is Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.

The Class:

This is a series of workshops geared toward beginners with no experience in Linux.

You will leave this class with a deeper understanding on how to utilize different programs and aspect of the raspberry pi. In previous classes we focused on GPIO pins programmed with python. In this class, we build upon those concepts, and integrate timmers, online content, and audio output to really see the potential of your hardware. This is part three of a three part series so everyone is expected to either understand the topics covered in the previous class.

What to Bring:

To participate in this class you need to only bring yourself and a raspberry pi if you own one. There will be up to 25 Raspberry Pi's available for checkout, but bringing your own is recommended.

Raspberry Pi's will be available to purchase on site if you would like to take one home.

Cost: $55 Class + $25 materials fee – (materials fee apply only if you haven't purchased the kit on the Intro to Electronics Class) Kit includes breadboard, LEDs, batteries, jumper wires, and all components. If you have all of these, you can bring your own.

    Hi team Fab Lab, I purchased the first three classes (intro to electronics and the two pi workshops), so Katie told me I can sign up for this fourth class at a discount. How much would that be? I am assuming I can modify the amount that PayPal will show me by default and enter the new price. Thanks!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
