The Raspberry Pi is a versatile mini computer that has sparked a generation of makers and creators. We will be hosting monthly workshops on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 10am to 12 pm building a new project each month out of the Rpi and the various sensors and components that may be used.
The workshops are open to middle school students up to adults. Just bring your Pi and additional hardware as needed for that month’s project. We may have additional components you may borrow and use of the day upon request.
September 15th- Setting Up
This workshop will focus on creating a bootable drive, creating various connections to the Pi (wifi, VNC, SSH), present some basic command line interface (CLI) commands, and create a simple LED blink project using the GPIO pins.
Needed materials: Raspberry Pi board (preferably Models 3 and up), Micro SD card, and your laptop (if you want to download and prepare your own .iso files).
October 20th- Spy Camera
For this project, we will be using a PIR motion sensor to detect movement and take a picture of ….?
November 17- Explore the Internet of Things (IoT)
This month we will be using a physical trigger such as a button press to trigger an event via IFTTT (If This Then That) and webhooks to trigger a message sent to your mobile device.
Needed materials: Set up Raspberry Pi board and laptop
December 15 – TBD
