The Raspberry PI has been a unique addition to the education landscape. It is a low cost computer that can be used for any number of unique activities. The Raspberry PI is a small education computer that can be used for a host of useful activities. Our first workshops will be based on this as we are just so excited about its potential in teaching kids about computers, programming and creativity.
In the workshop we will learn about the Raspberry PI and then complete a number of projects relating to Minecraft. Minecraft PI is a special educational version of Minecraft that can be programmed using software and hardware.

The price includes a Raspberry PI. If you already have a raspberry PI please select the option for the workshop only.

Kids bring their own lunch and drinks, and we will have some goodies throughout the day. Starts at 9:30am finishing around 5pm
