Back to Meet the Makers

Raspberry Pi Swag


What can you do with a Raspberry Pi? Have a chat with us, and we'll tell you! Robots, space exploration, doorbells, robot arms, we've seen it all, and you can too! Show your Pi-love and support education by getting Pi Swag!

Raspberry Pi: Shiny New Toys!


Eben will share some of the neat stuff they've seen people do with the Pi over the last six months, show a demo of their new hardware-accelerated desktop environment, and talk about what we've got coming up next—including their night-vision camera module, Pinoir.

RepRap: Self Replicating 3D Printer


These are RepRap 3D printers that melt plastic filament and build solid physical objects. The coolest thing that a RepRap can print is another RepRap. Most of these 3D printers' parts are printed plastic parts!



Low-cost computing technology will rapidly scale development efforts through increased access to quality educational resources. ELiTE uses the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and other platforms to pilot portable STEM Labs.

Surface Mount vs. Through Hole in Electronics Development


Many makers use through hole components for their electronics projects. In industry, however, folks use surface mount almost exclusively. In this talk, I will discuss the benefits to makers of using surface mount components.
