Description



Raspberry Pi Birthday Jam

for Middle School & High School Students

All Levels Welcome


We are excited to participate in the Raspberry Pi Birthday Weekend Jam events. Our goal is to provide a platform for students to gain the technical expertise needed to thrive in the highly competitive global environment. Getting comfortable with coding and the ability to work in functional teams are two major skills we intend to promote along with rewarding technical literacy skills and creativity.

The Raspberry Pi is a powerful, yet inexpensive, micro-computer that is the perfect tool for an introduction to hardware and physical computing. At this event, we will work hands-on with various sensors, LEDs, and other components, and use programming to control our circuits. This event will challenge students to learn more about the Raspberry Pi, and will give students an opportunity to show how versatile and powerful it can be. We will focus on digital making projects and challenges in order to expose students to this growing field in computer science.

Students will be organized based on their coding ability and given a challenge that requires students to work in Python. Not sure your Python skills are good enough? Don't worry, no experience is required, and our mentors will work with students who may need a little extra guidance. For students who would like to brush up on their Python before the event, we recommend code.org or codecademy.com.

The Birthday Jam will be lead by Sean Raser, Raspberry Pi Certified Teacher & AP Computer Science Teacher at California High School, and our SRVEF Imagineering Team.
