Kids 'n Kinship Youth Receive Instruction on Raspberry Pi Computers through Best Buy grant!

 Thanks to Best Buy, teens received instruction on how to use the Raspberry Pi computer and a program called “Scratch” in this year's first Tech Mentor program class!  The Raspberry Pi is a tiny and affordable computer that you can use to learn programming through fun, practical projects. In the first class students learned about what the Raspberry Pi can do. With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations. The students learned the basics of Scratch. In our second class, they will be working on creating their own game as well as all the variables in the program.

Many thanks to Best Buy Geek Squad and Ben Harwell, who was our instructor for the class. Thanks also to the Western Service Center who hosted us!!
