Electrical Engineering with Raspberry Pi

Teen One-Week Camp  Ages 12-17

Build Your Own Internet-Connected Device

Discover the basics of circuitry and the Python programming language using a Raspberry Pi. Students then apply what they learned by connecting ordinary objects to the internet, a concept known commonly as the Internet of Things.

You’ll create a variety of different projects, like a burglar alarm, Twitterbot, or clone of a handheld electronic game! Learn to control, automate, and program devices to do what you want from anywhere. Students bridge the gap between the physical world and the internet for endless project possibilities.

More About This Course

Our Robotics courses teach kids the basics of electrical engineering and programming as they design and build robots and other devices. Electrical Engineering with Raspberry Pi goes beyond building a simple robot and instead works with Internet of Things. But what is the Internet of Things?

It can be easily described as everyday objects having network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data. to design a device that takes input from the real world and connects it to the internet and other devices. Students will take advantage of the Internet of Things by coding in Python while tackling challenges that require creative thinking and elegant design.

The Teen Experience: Since 2002, DMA has been encouraging and inspiring teens to become the next generation of developers, animators, filmmakers, photographers, designers and engineers. In addition to developing teens’ interests and passions for the latest in new tech, our camps foster personal growth, confidence, and independence; preparing students for life beyond high school and college.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video.
