2018 Neumont Raspberry Pi Video Scholarship Winners

Neumont College of Computer Science

Students planning to attend Neumont College of Computer Science were invited to submit a video demonstrating what they learned building a project using a Raspberry Pi. The video submissions were amazing! Our judges were impressed by the initiative, verve, and courage of the students who submitted their projects. Thank you to everyone who participated by telling us about your adventures (or misadventures) with your Raspberry Pis. We loved hearing what you learned about hardware and software through these projects. Video submissions were made in the closed Facebook Group exclusively for the Class of 2021. 

Congratulations to the winners of the contest! Our faculty judges found the videos and projects below the most compelling. Great work, everyone! 

Software Singlemindedness: Riley Byrd

In the software singlemindedness category, students were encouraged to develop software on their own to get something new. Riley made a remarkable script that calls a user with an audio reminder for an upcoming event on their Google Calendar. To build this project, he worked with Python, Google Calendar API, Bash, and more. 

Hardware Bonanza: Tobin Blank

In the hardware category, students were encouraged to connect their Raspberry Pi to other devices to create something new. For his at-home server, Tobin combined a terabyte hard drive with a few different Raspberry Pis and Own Cloud to make DWIGHTS (Da Wireless Instant 1,000 Gig Text File Storage Server). His remarkable soundtrack also helped win the judges over in addition to a great server project. 

Pi + My Story: Lane Allan

To tell his story, Lane did a great job explaining what he knew before he started the project and what he learned to develop a new game. To create a text-based game with his Raspberry Pi, Lane learned Python. In his video he shares that he had previous coding experience with C, but wanted to challenge himself by learning the language associated with the provided hardware. 

Random Winner: Anthony Meredith

With the help of an algorithm, Anthony won the random drawing for the final scholarship. His project connected a Raspberry Pi to a bot that trades cryptocurrency. 

Each of the winning students will receive a $500 scholarship when they attend Neumont this fall. Financial aid is available to those who qualify. If you're planning to attend Neumont, call 866-801-1300 or email financialaid@neumont.edu to schedule an appointment with the Office of Financial Aid and discuss your options right away.
