The Centre for Computing History is running an exciting 'Introduction to Raspberry Pi' full-day workshop on 23rd March 2014.
With your host 'The Raspberry Pi Guy' aka Matthew Timmons-Brown, you'll learn what the Raspberry Pi is, how to use it, program it and even make it control motors!
Matthew is the guy behind the successful YouTube channel 'The Raspberry Pi Guy' and, with over 18,000 subscribers, he's the perfect person to introduce you to a world of possibilities with the Raspberry Pi.
If you've purchased a Raspberry Pi and don't really know what to do next, then these workshops will be invaluable to you. These informative, practical and inventive ‘hands-on’ workshops are ideal for both students and adults.
The workshop cost £20 per person (or £30 for two people sharing) for the entire day course. This fee also includes admission to the museum. The workshop will be held in the newly opened Hauser Studio at the museum which has been kitted out with 16 Raspberry Pi's.
The morning session runs from 11am to 1pm and the topics covered will be:
What is the Raspberry Pi? - An introduction to the Raspberry Pi and what it can do and how to set it up.
Using the OS - Introduces you to Linux and shows you the basics needed to navigate around the operating system.
The afternoon session begins at 2pm to 4pm and covers:
Programming the Pi - What is programming? An introduction to Python and how to program on the Pi.
Get Connected - How to make the Raspberry Pi control motors and sense switches.
The organisers ask that children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and workshop sessions cannot be booked individually.
