University of Saskatchewan
Grades 7+: Technology Camp: Codemakers: Raspberry Pi Boot Camp
Students will expand their computer science horizons outside of Windows or Mac operating systems and learn to use Linux! Each camper will come away from the camp with their very own linux computer and the knowhow to use it. Oh, and the computer they take home fits in your pocket! Using the Raspberry Pi and some hardware (joystick and arcade buttons), we will be building our own Retro Gaming Arcade Machines! The idea is to build a portable arcade machine that you can take anywhere and plug into any TV or Monitor (via HDMI port) and play your favourite retro video games! If you already have a Raspberry Pi device (possibly from SCI-FI last year) you can save $100 on your registration cost.
Due to non-recoverable costs, each registration includes a $50 non-refundable deposit. Given two weeks’ notice (prior to the event date); we will refund the remainder of your registration. We will not guarantee any refund with less than two weeks’ notice. Exchange of equal value is possible, subject to program availability.
