Getting Physical at Raspberry Heights Workshop

Today’s Beginners Class was all about physical computing. It’s my favorite part of The Raspberry Heights Workshop. They all love the hands-on aspect of it and for many it’s the first time that they are able to use computers to make things happen IRL (in real life). They learned about basic electronics and circuits and made an LED turn on and off using Scratch.

Hi fellow Makers!

Raspberry Heights Workshop will be at the World Maker Faire next weekend in New York City. We are making a big call out to our alumni and supporters. If you have taken a class or have been a supporter of Raspberry Heights, please stop by our booth for a group photo at 2:00PM on Saturday. Come earlier if you’d like to share your Raspberry Pi project at our booth. Just bring your rig (Pi and any interfacing equipment) and we’ll get you set up.

If you have never taken a class at Raspberry Heights Workshop, Maker Faire is the perfect time to come and ask us questions face to face.

Raspberry Heights Workshop is Looking for an Intern

Do you know of a young woman or young man interested in technology? We are looking to make our local computer classes for kids even better. If you know a spunky, responsible student that would like to learn, teach and help kids have fun while learning about computers, have them contact me.

I am seeking someone that is a HS senior college student looking to build a resume and earn money on Sunday mornings and occasional Saturdays. Classes are held in Jackson Heights. rtcallahan@gmail.com
