Learn how to program in Python on the Raspberry PI 3 platform! This will include program structure, access the GPIO pins, and making the PI control leds, motors, receive input from switches.

  1. Students will learn how to download and install Rasbian on their Pi.

  2. Students will learn the basics of Linux, and how to do some basic things with their Pi.

    • Connect to wi-fi and browse the web.

    • Log into their Pi remotely

    • Create other users

    • Connect other devices like bluetooth keyboards, mice, and headphones.

Audience & knowledge prerequisites:

This is a basic class and is open to anyone, it is strongly recommended that you have taken the Introduction to Raspberry PI with Maverick (held one week before this class) and have the kit purchased as part of that class available. We will be using a good number of the items that are included in the kit.

The kit we are using is available here.

Students should bring:

  1. Raspberry PI 3 kit (Amazon Link) (IF they aren't purchasing the kit through Make Nashville)

  2. Monitor with a HDMI input

  3. Bluetooth devices: keyboard, mouse, headphones (optional).


Not all classes are free for members, but they are always discounted. Why is this? Our instructors are experts; some choose to volunteer their time, and some need to earn money for sharing their knowledge and experience because this is how they make their living.
