Welcome to this experiential learning environment where everything is based around the concept of "learning-by-doing". Thinkerers.org was started based on the belief that everybody can and should be "making". The workshop will revolve around hobby electronic prototyping with the Raspberry Pi (or just Pi for short), as an easy introduction to the maker movement and the infinite possibilities within it. Do take note that the maker movement isn't just about electronics but also extends to anything that is "made" - which is just about almost everything you see around you.
You will learn collaboratively to make the class more engaging and fun. Working with others, especially when it comes to the more technical bits, has proven to be more effective in the real world. Everyone knows that "two heads are better than one"!
This introductory class is suitable for you if:
you bought a RPi but don't know what to do with it or never had the time
you know about the cool stuff you can do with a RPi and want to play around with it first before you buy
you love fixing (and perhaps also taking apart) things around you a.k.a. self-proclaimed DIY nut
you are just curious to learn about cool and interesting stuff
No prior experience with the Pi, electronics, or programming needed (but if you do, feel free to share it with us!)
IMPORTANT: if you own a RPi, please bring it along to the workshop and mention about it in the booking email
Also IMPORTANT: please bring along your laptop (Windows/Mac/Linux) for the workshop
