  • Camp Description

    Our Pi Jam camp introduces our more advanced programmers to the world of IoT, or Internet of Things. As computers and technology expand like wildfire, you’ll find more and more computers in your “things” – like your watch, your smart home, or even your refrigerator. These gadgets are all run by computers that are getting smaller and smaller! Our Pi Jam camp introduces kids to one of the hottest mini-computers today, the Raspberry Pi.

    Teaching Platform

    PI Jam Coding Camp at theCoderSchool Raspberry Pi is the latest in the tiny computing and Internet-of-Things craze – a mini computer that can run languages like Scratch or Python, control physical things like lights and other sensors, and even let you play with a Python-coded version of Minecraft! Our Pi Jam camp takes campers through an introductory crash course on how to set up a Pi and run some basic programming on it. Each camper will have their own Pi computer to work on (however, please check your specific location as to whether kids take the Pi home at the end of the week).

    Concepts Learned

    Campers will get a chance to get hands on with a Raspberry Pi, from installing the operating system to getting the computer started and running. Once the Pi is up and functional, campers will learn how to operate their own mini-computer, coding with a range of languages from Unix command prompts to Python or Scratch.

    Skill Level

    Our Pi Jam camp is our more advanced camp. Campers should be good coders already, with good understanding of fundamental coding concepts. Coders must be good typers, and have a basic amount of experience with languages like Python, Javascript, or the equivalent.

    What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding classes for kids? Founded in 2013, we're the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®.
