Arduino and Raspberry Pi Workshops

October 20, 2018

SEAS Computing Facility (SEASCF) will be hosting three free interactive workshops on Arduinos and Raspberry Pis, which are inexpensive platforms for electronics and programming projects:

Saturday, October 20: Introduction to Raspberry Pi

Saturday, November 3: Introduction to Arduino

Saturday, November 10: Arduino/Raspberry Pi Project Lab

Each workshop will be from 1 - 4pm in the SEH Studio labs (SEH 1300/1400/1450). 

At the Introduction to Raspberry Pi and Introduction to Arduino workshops,
attendees will learn about the basics of these technologies and how to get
started. Attendees will also create some introductory projects involving
sensors and LEDs. Additionally, they will gain experience with basic
programming in Python (for Raspberry Pi) and C/C++ (for Arduino) as well as
simple circuits.

Then, at the Raspberry Pi/Arduino Project Lab, the equipment will be
available along with self-guided project instructions to put the skills
into use. Staff will be available to help. Potential projects to choose
from include programmable cars, a Raspberry Pi Pong game, an Arduino paper
piano, a weather station with a Twitter bot, and a security system with a
camera and motion detection. The introduction tutorials will also be
available in self-guided form for any attendees who couldn't make it to an
introduction workshop or just want to learn at their own pace.

Experience specifically with Python, C/C++, or circuits is not required for
either. All equipment will be provided. Group work encouraged. You can
register for as many or as few of the three workshops as you would like.
