IoT Youth Program
The IoT Youth Program is one of the ways that WindyCityThings gives back to the community. Young people are full of energy and curiosity; IoT is a great place for youthful exploration.
For a full Friday afternoon during WindyCityThings (while the adults are in separate sessions) BLUE1647 will introduce youth to the Internet of Things. Youth between the ages of 12 and 17 will learn Raspberry Pi programming, and each student will get their own Raspberry Pi Model 2 to take home at the end of the session. The BLUE1647 instructors, Rashad Glover and Ken Watkins, have led similar programs for Latina Girls Code, Join1919, and UrbanRaise.
- Each youth participant is required to complete answer a few short questions about IoT.
- Registration for the IoT Youth Program is free.
- Only fifty (50) youth slots are available.
