Become a Computer Engineer and build your own computer!

This summer, don’t just get a new computer – build one! At computer building camp, you’ll put together, program, and take home your own laptop!

At camp we’ll start by discussing how computers work and beginning to put together the cables, circuit boards, buttons, and other components needed to make a computer. Pi-top computers make use of an innovative sliding keyboard that allows you to work on the brain of the computer, then slide the keyboard over it when you are finished. Once the computer’s complete, you can show off all the hard work you did simply by sliding back the keyboard for easy access to the internal hardware!

Once your computer is complete, you’ll learn programming using the innovative pi-topOS. Aside from having applications that you’ll want for general use, such as Google Chrome, Docs, Sheets, and Drive, you’ll also have some great applications for learning programming. For example, we’ll make use of Minecraft Pi edition. This is a special version of Minecraft for Raspberry Pi operating systems which generates structures in Minecraft based on your Python code!

Over the course of the week, you will learn how computers are put together, and how the hardware and software work. You’ll also get to see some of the cool programs and games you can make with your newly built computer! Best of all, you get to take it all home!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Be a Maker: Make something awesome – your very own computer… and learn a lot throughout the process.

A Great Way To Get Started In Programming: Pi-Top uses drag and drop and python coding to allow for programing that is intuitive and easy to understand while still leaving tons of powerful options!

Improve Logical Thinking Skills: At camp, not only do you learn to code and invent, you also improve your logical thinking and problem solving skills. These skills can be applied to many areas of life, and our campers definitely benefit from this training at school and in life!

Hands-On Engineering: Work with wires, circuits, nuts, bolts, and cables to build and engineer! Whenever you want to adjust something, simply slide the keyboard down and you have direct access to the internal hardware!

Take Home a Computer: The ultimate take home project – your very own computer. Use it during the year, in school, at home, or on the go.

Understand the World of Technology: We live in a world full of technology and computers. Become skilled in computer building a see the industry from a totally different angle. Gain perspective that will help to build your repertoire of tech skills in today’s fast paced world.
