Computers without screens: Building with a Raspberry Pi+

This workshop is an introduction to setting up and getting started with your Raspberry Pi. If you've never set up a Pi, or are just curious about what they can do, this workshop is for you!

  • Recognize the different physical components of the Raspberry Pi, breadboards, jumper cables, and sensors.
  • Create, edit, save and execute Python files on the Raspberry Pi that perform very basic functionality.
  • Identify a variety of input and output sensors, and to connect them to a Raspberry Pi using a breadboard and jumper cables.
  • Carry out tutorials that involve connecting various individual sensors to the Raspberry Pi.
  • Create a component that consists of multiple input and output sensors.
