Raspberry Pi from the ground up!

Not sure how to get started with a Raspberry PI? Got one as a gift during the Holidays?

Come find out how to install Raspbian and get started with this cool little single board computer!

We will show you:

- How to download and install Raspbian to your Pi

- How to configure your Pi

- Getting on the Internet with your Pi

- How to Program your Pi

- An intro to the Pi’s GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) Pins

We will briefly demonstrate how to use the GPIO pins to turn an LED on and off. We provide a small breadboard and components. For a $5 donation, you can take the breadboard and parts with you!

You will need to bring:

- Your laptop (must have an SD Card Reader)

- Your Raspberry Pi (PI Zero require HDMI & USB adapters)

- Micro SD Card for the Pi

- A Micro-USB Power Adapter/Cable

The classroom will be furnished with the following to connect to your Pi:

- Keyboards & Mice

- Monitors and Video Cables

But feel free to bring your own!
