Raspberry Pi Online
We expect our Raspberry Pi program to expand greatly in the foreseeable future, even as the pandemic imposes restrictions – we are making our virtual classes available to any school or group that is interested. It is here students are taught something new every week, and by Week Three they are given their own Raspberry Pi Computer to keep! To learn more about this six week online program, or to apply to be added to our calendar for 2021, be sure to reach out to the Collaborative.
