The next “Maker Monday” technology program will be held at the Altus Public Library on Sept. 14 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
Southwest Technology Center electronics student, Tim Heineken, will be demonstrating a Raspberry Pi computer. This after-school program is designed for children (ages 10 and up), teens and young adults through age 18. Parents also are encouraged to attend this demonstration session.
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. It is a device that enables people of all ages to explore computing and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. Tim will demonstrate how to use the Raspberry Pi computer to control a basic circuit.
Financial assistance for this special project is made possible with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries.
