In this course students create an invention and explore computer, electronics, and technology concepts with the Raspberry Pi and plug-in devices in the GrovePi kit (No soldering required).
Using the GrovePi invention kit, they learn about the Internet of Things (IOT) and the Engineering Design Process. They can invent weather stations, pet feeders, locker alarms, and explore fun ways to collect data for science experiments such as monitoring plant growth or flying a weather balloon with a camera and the plug-in electronics in this kit.
The Scratch coding language is introduced on the Raspberry Pi and then used to connect and control each device. This is a great way to apply math and science concepts with hands-on building. No prior coding experience required!
