60 TY students from 15 schools in the county will an opportunity to learn coding, electronics and business development over 8 weeks in dlr LexIcon.
The students will have workshops in using Rasperry Pi’s and Arduino kits for building new innovative business products and prototypes.
The RASPBERRY PIis a credit card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard, its like a little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing and games. It also plays high definition video. The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 512Mbytes of RAM. The design does not include a built in hard disk or solid state drive, instead relying on a microSD card for booting and long term storage. This board is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems.
