Pop-Up Pi Day: Make, Learn and Play with the World's Simplest Computer Kit!

Many of the coolest technologies today started with a bunch of parts and a big idea. Kids 12 to 15 years old are invited to join us at the Computer History Museum on March 15 to see some of the early computers and then make their own!

Using Kano – a high-tech Lego-like kit for the do-it-yourself Raspberry Pi – kids will get to plug, play, and tinker as they make their first computer from scratch. They will then use the magic of code to conjure their fi rst programs, play videos, and launch games. Featured in the fun will be some of the newest learning tools in computing, such as Minecraft, Scratch, and Codeacademy.

Lunch will be included for the participants, and parents will have free admission to the museum while their kids are participating in the event. Children 12 years and younger always receive free admission.

This event is made possible by Broadcom Foundation.
