Did you know that it is also a great way to get them interested in coding? Minecraft Pi edition runs on Raspberry Pi. The credit card sized computer was designed with education in mind. The Minecraft Pi API allows kids to interact with the actual code of the game as they are playing. In this 4 hour workshop, students will be introduced to the Raspberry Pi computer and get a high level overview of what computers are and how they work.
