The “Raspberry Pi” is a very small computer that was developed to teach people how to program. Not only is the Raspberry Pi a great tool for learning programming skills, but there are also dozens of cross-curricular applications in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). Creative minds have used the Pi in a variety of interesting ways by leveraging its size, affordability, programmability, and ease of connectivity. With Raspberry Pi, the sky is the limit!
This workshop will introduce you to the Raspberry Pi, an inexpensive credit-card- sized computer that can do amazing things. You will learn how to hook-up, turn on, and program the Raspberry Pi to take pictures and detect real-world signals such as motion, temperature, and pressure. The workshop will culminate with a hands-on project in which participants make a burglar alarm system by programming the Raspberry Pi to turn on a camera and record a video when motion is detected.
