Raspberry Pi 101

Get started with Raspberry Pi and build a multimedia player! In this introductory course, you will learn how to use the popular Raspberry Pi platform. We will show you how to set up your Pi with a keyboard and screen, then introduce you to the operating system and software. We will also teach you how to turn your Pi into a multimedia player that can play music, watch movies and photos.

This two-part course is taught by Luis Costa and Tim Pozar.

The cost is $180 for two evening sessions of 3 hours each. All materials are included: you can take your Raspberry Pi kit home after the class ends (a $55 value).

No experience necessary. Maximum class size is 10 students. Students ages 13 to 18 can enroll if a parent also enrolls — or with instructor’s prior approval.

After completing this class, you can extend your skills and build your own projects by signing up for the Maker Club workshops.
