Come explore the wonders of building and programming of micro-computing at our special hands-on Raspberry Pi “playground” workshop designed just for educators, parents, and people encouraging STEM with kids!

This fun, interactive day-long workshop will teach you the tech “inside & out” as well as a few creative applications of the affordable Raspberry Pi micro-computer. We’ll build it plus program and load it with a variety of options from arcade gaming to desktop applications, from streaming media to digital signage.

It's more important than ever that we develop a solid understanding how the technology we use today actually works! And everyone should have the opportunity to develop their computing and digital making skills.

If you work with kids in any capacity—from teaching to parenting, scouting to camps and youth programs—you'll want to get techie with us on June 9 and learn to build, program and load a micro-computer.

Perfect for anyone in an instructional role:
+ elementary teachers
+ middle & high school teachers
+ STEM or science coordinators
+ student teachers & education majors
+ group leaders for scouts or day camps
+ directors of youth programming
+ “geek” parents or parents of techie kids!
+ and more…
