    Maker Hub Workshop: Exploring the World of Raspberry Pi

    The Raspberry Pi is the $35 computer that is revolutionizing the way we create, teach, and innovate. Due to its low-cost, ease of use, and strong community, the Pi democratizes access to technology, opening new pathways for education, entrepreneurship and social impact where previously costs would have been prohibitive.

    In this two-hour session, led by educator and tinkerer Ron Henderson, we’ll look at a wide range of uses for the Raspberry Pi, with a focus on uses of relevance to the Georgetown Community.

    We’ll get hands-on with several introductory projects that illustrate the basic principles of raspberry pi, making music, controlling physical devices, even live-coding in Minecraft!

    We’ll then brainstorm ways that you could apply the technology to your own courses, programs, initiatives, and general fun-having.

    Participants can expect to walk away with an understanding of the Raspberry Pi ecosystem and community resources; exposure to a variety of programming interfaces for graphics, sound, physical computing, and gaming; and a bunch of new ideas for how the Pi can enhance their work and leisure.

    There will be sufficient Raspberry Pi workstations set up for pair-programming, but if you want to walk away with your work, you can buy your own Raspberry Pi in advance and bring it to work on. Click here to register.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
