The Raspberry Pi Beginner's Guide - 16 February 2017
Have you received a Raspberry Pi for Christmas? Did you buy one expecting it to be foolproof, but now need a helping hand? Maybe you're wondering what the whole Pi phenomenon is about?
This half-day workshop will introduce you to everything Pi-related. We'll start from the very basics - unboxing, plugging in, working out which cable does what - and by the end we'll have you coding like a pro and beginning your own electronics project. Don't worry about bringing any equipment - we'll provide all you need.
The Pi has now become the top-selling British computer of all time, zooming past 10 million units. It is the ideal computer for hobbyists and budding coders looking to experiment, and is far more than just an educational tool. Come along to the workshop and find out what it's all about!
The workshop runs from 11am-3pm, with breaks built in. Participants cost £28, and accompanying adults are free as part of our standard admission of £8.
It is aimed at children aged seven and up. Parents can also learn a great deal by accompanying children to the workshop, or even taking part themselves!
Although the booking is for a specific time slot, entry to the Centre is permitted all day. The Centre is open from 10am to 5pm.
Tea, coffee and snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop. There's plenty of seating for parents.
