Abe Michelen, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, New York

The “Raspberry Pi” is a very small computer that was developed to teach people how to program. Not only the Raspberry Pi (RPi) is a great tool for learning programming skills, but there are also dozens of cross-curricular applications in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).

Note: A Raspberry PI board and a set of components will be distributed to the participants to be used in classes for hands-on activities. Please email Billie Copley – billie@micronanoeducation.org with your mailing address, US residents only. There will be a max of 15 participants for this session.

Basics General content you will learn in this workshop:

  • How to install the PI, and learn about the inner working of the Raspberry Pi system?
  • How to program with Python? The best way to program the RPi is with Python. We will spend some time to introduce the attendees to the basic Python language.
  • Use the General Purpose Input-Output pins (GPIO) to interface with other hardware / sensors / electronics devices.
  • Some sensors used:
    • LEDs
    • Temperature and humidity sensors.
    • LCD displays
  • Some projects:
    • VNC for the Raspberry PI (remote access)
    • RPi Oscilloscope
    • Kodi on the Raspberry PI (home theater) – if time permits
    • Motion Sensor with the PI – if times permits
