In this three-week course, students will be introduced to the Python programming language. They will explore computer science and the art of computer programming by using the Raspberry Pi, a credit-card sized computer with built-in sensors and wireless communication. Students will learn about concepts such as loops, variables, sensors, actuators, conditionals, through a series of fun individual and group projects. For the final project, students will work in small teams to create an original project of their own choosing that has personal or community value. The project work will happen within a structured process that includes using Design Thinking to identify project requirements, development of collaboration skills, daily check-ins and journaling with peer/instructor/mentor feedback, and a final exhibition.
