Maker Camp: Day 4

Today is Raspberry Pi day on Maker Camp. What’s Raspberry Pi? It’s a cheap but powerful little computer that you can use to power in any number of projects. Matt Richardson, MAKE contributing editor and co-author of Getting Started With Raspberry Pi, will be today’s special guest. He’ll offer a primer in the Pi and talk about a few of his favorite projects.

Make this rocket car and watch it go.

In addition to Raspberry Pi, the MAKE lab interns will be showing you how to build a rocket-propelled toy car.

If you want to build your own, be sure to take photos of your finished project, and share them on the Maker Camp +Community with the #makercamp hashtag.
