Introduction to the Raspberry Pi

December 5, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 6:30 pm


This class will provide an overview of the Raspberry Pi and its operating system. Students will build simple applications using GPIO, a stepper motor and a camera module. Experience with Python and Linux would be useful but is not necessary.

Class Goals
Students will learn how to use a Raspberry Pi as a desktop computer. They will also build three separate, simple applications, which will expose students to different important features of the Pi. Students will be provided with a Pi and all of the necessary hardware (there will be a materials fee) and example programs.

Materials Fee
$90 payable by cash/check to the Instructor. For this fee, students take this home the following:
– Raspberry Pi
– power supply
– 32gb sd card adapter and Raspbian OS
– stepper motor + controller
– webcam
– small bread board
– resistor and led
– dupont connectors
– clip storage box
– HDMI cable

Students may want to bring in your own laptop, though this is not required.
