Build your own game console capable of playing popular classic arcade titles from the 80s and 90s.
The Raspberry Pi computer is a small, inexpensive and versatile computer that can be incorporated into countless fun and educational enterprises. In this camp students will modify a project box to include an arcade joystick and buttons. Participants will then learn the basic characteristics of the R-Pi, how to program it, and specifically how to turn it into the brain for a retro gaming console. Not only do students learn programming and how to use cutting edge technology, they will be exposed to tool use, mechanical design, soldering and circuitry while creating their inventions.
**Students get to keep the game console** It will interface with an HDMI input on just about any modern TV or computer monitor.
