This class will provide an overview of the Raspberry Pi and its operating system. Students will build simple applications using GPIO, a stepper motor and a camera module. Experience with Python and Linux would be useful but is not necessary.
Students will learn how to use a Raspberry Pi as a desktop computer. They will also build three separate, simple applications, which will expose students to different important features of the Pi. Students will be provided with a Pi and all of the necessary hardware (there will be a materials fee) and example programs.

– Raspberry Pi
– power supply
– 32gb sd card adapter and Raspbian OS
