Raspberry Pi Workshop
On Thursday, March 30th, Synchrony Financial, along with students from the School of Engineering Senior Design Team they are working with, presented the Maker Workshop Working with Raspberry Pi.  In this 2-hour workshop, students were introduced to the capabilities of Raspberry Pi and how it can be integrated into various security systems including thumbprint/biometric recognition, electric door locks and NFC readers/writers.  Not only did students learn about new and innovative technology, the workshop also provided a great networking opportunity and thanks to the generosity of Synchrony Financial, each student received their own Raspberry Pi!
