No Same Old Robotics. Advanced Automation Using Raspberry Pi at STEM For Kids Programs in the Triangle Area.
Morrisville / RTP NC 10/7/2018 –
The Internet has revolutionized how we search, consume and share information. The Internet of Things (IoT) involves extending internet connectivity to everyday devices like lights and fridge at home to change the way we live, work, entertain, travel and even how governments and businesses work! The outlook is promising…it is estimated that by 2020, worldwide market for IoT will be ~$9 Trillion with almost 31 Billion IoT devices.
STEM For Kids® is announcing programs in the IoT space to engage school age children in this exciting and growing industry. Programs will be available as camps, afterschool programs, in-school field trips and workshops, weekend classes and other enrichment classes.
In the first course called Home Automation with Raspberry Pi, students will use a general-purpose single-board computer, Raspberry Pi, to create simple examples of home automation.
Students will learn how sensors, microprocessors with connectivity, and processes form the foundation of IoT. Children will learn about Pi’s anatomy – various components of the Raspberry Pi – including System on a Chip, Input / Output Interfaces and Operating System.
Children will learn the basics of Python programming language to instruct the Pi to work wonders. They will get a primer on circuit designing. To apply their learning into action, children will design and build various automation projects.
Through this action-packed curriculum, STEM For Kids aims to inspire the young minds to imagine really cool IoT applications and figure out the means to implement their imagination.
“We are using Raspberry Pi for real-life applications in my work and it is really exciting to see that STEM For Kids is bringing the knowledge of Pi to young children”, says Tom Hyatt, a member of the STEM For Kids’ Curriculum Advisory Committee, a franchisee and a senior network support and solutions engineer involved in developing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) applications for his clients.
This new curriculum is being offered as track-out camps, summer camps, afterschool programs and Saturday classes around the Triangle area in Raleigh, Morrisville, Durham, Cary and Rollesville.
