November 22 – Engineering Design Day at NCSU (Only 14 spots). 12 – 4 p.m. This one requires special permission as it is the last day of school before the Thanksgiving holiday. Transportation provided. Cool opportunity to see the team presentations during FED – Freshman Engineering Design Day. Find out what it’s really like to be an engineering student at NCSU.

December 10thPi Day at the WELL – Come join this very hands-on session using the tiny, but powerful Raspberry Pi to program electronic circuits.  We’ll use Scratch and/or Python to get lights blinking, and then let our creativity and programming skills run wild to connect buttons, lights, motion sensors, cameras, and other cool sensors. Some experience with Scratch and/or Python is helpful, but not required. Raspberry Pi and sensor kits will be provided for your use during the session.
