Students will learn how to troubleshoot and then code different functionalities using Python. Our Raspberry Pi camp introduces students to one of the most popular mini-computers and provides ample time for hands-on experience mimicking and debugging real-world Python applications, using peripherals and sensors with the Raspberry Pi. This camp is designed for students with a basic understanding of fundamental coding concepts or who have taken Python Boot Camp. Topics include: • Assembling, coding, operating, and troubleshooting a Raspberry Pi • Installing and navigating Linux OS • Using Python syntax - variables, nested conditionals, defining new object classes and structure • Applying peripherals and sensors for real-world applications
