Space Race to Mars!

Sat, September 2
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Raspberry Pi and the AWS Internet of Things

Think fast and work together to beat the opposing team to Mars in an old fashioned space race! Build a real world launch dashboard using Raspberry Pi and AWS IoT cloud services. Understand how Amazon Web Services
can be used to interconnect devices and design application logic to create useful networks of real world “things.”

Everyone must join forces…using code, cloud, and hardware to launch their mission to Mars before the other team beats you to it!

Experience Level

None required. We will provide boards. If you want to bring your own, please bring a Raspberry Pi 3 or Raspberry Pi 2 with WIFI with the latest version of Raspbian and SSH enabled.

We will provide laptops to connect with the Pis over SSH. If you have your own laptop with SSH, you’re welcome to bring that as well.

Want your own Raspberry Pi?
You’re welcome to bring your own but if you order through us, BRW Electronics will have what you need at the Jam ready to go!
