Raspberry Pi - Exploring the Power of Computing

Help me give my students the 6 kits of Raspberry pi to understand and apply what coding can do mechanically.

My Students

GHS students are primarily from the low-income background; 80% qualify for free or reduced lunch, and more than 50% are Hispanics.

I firmly believe that GHS has a talented pool of young people are ready to take on raspberry pi challenges.

Despite the odds, we have many college-bound students, We have almost 85 students who take my classes APCSP, APCS, AP Calc AB, and AP Calc BC. The field of computer science is expanding exponentially in our lives is an undeniable truth. The research says students from low SES and girls tend not to try new opportunities.

I taught AP Research, AP Calc AB and BC at GHS last year. GHS students proved their talent, six years in a row, by scoring averages ranging from 3.8 to 5 out 5 in AP Calculus BC exam, always above, or at par to, the state and national averages. Every one in AP Research class passed last year.

My Project

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit card-sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse.

Raspberry pi is an awesome way to see the connections between mechanics and coding.

Raspberry pi is designed for beginners to start coding in a fun way. It also the foundation for many more advanced programs and functions. Some developers really have maximized this tiny machine, creating some extremely impressive devices to help both at home and in a work environment. Few examples of my previous students' project include home automation using Raspberry pi.

We have really creative students in our school and I believe that they can create some great products using this amazing device. So help me creat an opportunity for my students.
