An Introduction to the Raspberry Pi @ CESI

You are welcome to join us for a brief introduction to the Raspberry Pi at the upcoming CESI conference (Sat. 1st March 2014).

This will be a sneak peek for the full day workshop that Bridge21 are offering as part of a suite of CPD workshops for teachers to help assist them in teaching CS topics, such as those covered in the new JC2 short courses.

The Raspberry Pi is a very small self-contained computer which can be programmed with a variety of common languages including Scratch, Python and Java. It comes with a set of easily programmable interfaces which allow the Pi to be used to control other devices.

This workshop provides an introduction into the world of computers and controllers. The workshop will focus on hands on activities with the Raspberry Pis and light electronics, buttons and game controllers. Programming will be primarily done in Scratch.
