This camp introduces students to Robotics via the Raspberry Pi, using the PiGlow and Pibrella shields. This is the first course of its kind. No one teaches the fundamentals of Robotics like we do. The Raspberry Pi is a compact, powerful computer that is small enough to fit on portable platforms, thereby making it very practical for robotics. This course allows students to develop, build and program using the Raspberry Pi. Students will work hands-on in teams of 2-3 to complete a set of increasingly complex builds. Students will start to code by learning code basics and logic with the Scratch programming language. In addition, the students will learn how the Raspberry Pi interacts with external modules using the GPIO interface. The PiGlow is an external module that provides 18 individually controllable LEDs. Students will identify and then program the LEDs to create their own customized light patterns. Students can create cool light displays that express their skills with code and logic.
Students will be automatically assigned their levels based on their previous enrollment of after school classes or camps. The curriculum is new (2018), there is will all new tasks and problems to solve.
