Raspberry Pi Challenge
University of Advancing Technology – On September 29th the Raspberry Pi Programming Challenge begins. The process is simple. Students can check out a Raspberry Pi kit from the library (or use your own). From there, students and student teams of up to four are challenged to spend one week building something interesting. Spending on the project, beyond the basic Pi kit, is not to exceed $20. Professors Tony Hinton (thinton@uat.edu) and Joseph Horne (jhoren@uat.edu) are the faculty resources. Talk to them about ideas and paths to take in case you and your team become jammed. At noon on October 6th participants will gather in the UAT theatre (in-person or via stream) to present their invention presentations, judging and awards. Criteria for winning the awards and brag stripes will be based on how innovative the project is, how intuitive it is and finally its functionality. Be there! Compete! Innovate!

This display is quite a shock because people often see their favorite childhood or teen book there. ?? Julie Holston’s Theater students will do a second, shorter reading of Oedipus Rex. ?? Refreshments! Raffle drawings! Enter to win an Amazon gift card so you can buy your own banned book. Also, enter to win a book bag from the American Library Association, and an SMCC beanie. ??

Most importantly, enjoy celebrating your Freedom to Read whatever you choose! This event is open to the public since we are also a branch of Phoenix Public Library. Instructors are invited to bring their classes. We verify attendance for extra credit. Guidelines for readers: Selections to be read should be about one minute in length, which translates to approx. 150-250 words. (We will not be timing people!)
