So, you’ve learned a bit about computer programming - now let’s put your skills to work. Join this session to apply your programming skills by creating a real-world invention. Your instructors will guide you through the fundamentals of using Raspberry Pi electronics. And because we want you to continue inventing with your students after the session ends, you will be introduced to an entertaining and practical guide called Raspberry Pi Electronics Projects for the Evil Genius. The guide features ten fun DIY projects that showcase the RasPi’s application in computing, communications, robotics, photography, and video. Ever thought about building a Bluetooth-controlled robot; a weather station, home automation and security controllers? They are all inside these pages. You can’t go wrong since each project includes a detailed list of materials, sources for parts, schematics, assembly and programming instructions. You won’t be able to sleep at night while visions of inventions will dance through your head - or is that sugar plums? No matter. You’ll definitely want to dive in.
