The starting point for all things Raspberry Pi. Includes links to purchase the devices, downloads, training materials, and project ideas
Raspberry Pi Projects
If you are the kind of person who likes to learn by doing, this page is where you should start! The top three links are all about getting started with the Pi, programming with Scratch and learning Python.
Getting started with your Raspberry Pi
This project contains four parts:
Setting up your Raspberry Pi
Using your Raspberry Pi
Making a robot antenna
Making a stop motion camera app
The first two steps are the ones that we cover in the Library Lecture series. The last two require the user to purchase some additional equipment but are super fun. You should try them!
Some fun projects the library recommends
Do you use an Ad blocker? Did you ever wonder how many ads your computer was getting on a daily basis? Did you wish you could stop those annoying ads and speed up your internet?
Pi-Hole does that. And it even works on a Raspberry Pi Zero (W), the cheapest way possible to block all ads on all devices on your home network. How cold is my office?
This very simple tutorial shows you how to configure the Raspberry Pi/Grove Pi device to read the temperature in your office on a small LED screen.

Get Started with the Grove Pi
This is the Dexter Industries page introducing people to the Grove pi. Includes three tutorials on programming in Python, Scratch, and Java. Along with 10 projects for people to experiment with in order to get a sense of how the Grove Pi works
Raspbian for Robots
This is the easiest way to get your Raspberry Pi talking with the Grove Pi - Just install Raspbian for Robots! This instructions walk you through getting the card set up for the first time.
Projects for the Grove Pi
Dexter Industries and the Grove Pi are ideally suited for a number of robot projects. This page will give you a lot of ideas about the types of projects that you will be able to do with the Grove Pi.
