Introduction to Electronics and Programming with the Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi has been an incredible success story, selling in enormous numbers in a short space of time and revolutionising computer science education.

Not only can it function as a general purpose computer, but it's "GPIO" pins allow you to connect all sorts of electronic components, allowing you to build just about any electronic project you can think of!

Learn the fundamentals of electronics and programming and build your own project in this enjoyable course.

This course is an ideal introduction for those looking to explore programming and physical computing for fun or as a career.

Description

Learn about electronics and programming and build your own project using Raspberry Pi computer.

Detail

Working with the Raspberry Pi

This small, cheap computer will be the brains of the robot. We will turn it on and play with it.

Introduction to Electronics

We will build some simple electronic circuits using batteries, LEDs, resistors and switches.

Driving Circuits from a Raspberry Pi

We will connect the simple circuits we built to the Raspberry Pi and write some simple code to control the circuit.

Working with Hats

Raspberry Pi Hats are complete project boards that sit on the Raspberry Pi. We will take a look at a few of them to understand the scope of what can be achieved.

Programming input devices and sensors

We will look at the huge variety of sensors and input devices and build working mini-projects with them. This will include distance measurement, light sensors, temperature sensors, PIRs, contact sensors, cameras, keypads, etc.

Building your own project

Individually or in groups we will design and build a project such as a digital camera, alarm system, weather station, etc. Students can use the workshop to cut and work wood, plastic, cardboard or other materials.
