Celebrating Charter Day with Emerging Technologies  

Coding with Raspberry PiCharter Day celebrates the founding of Seton Hall in 1856 and the granting of our charter by the New Jersey State legislature in 1861. It is a special annual opportunity to reflect on our history and purpose, our Catholic identity and mission.

The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center will celebrate our Charter with a MakerSpace open lab on March 27th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Explore Space154 and emerging technologies like virtual reality, robotics, digital scavenger hunts, green screen technology, and Raspberry Pi gaming.

  • SHUmazing Race: Groups or individuals will be given clues to find things on campus. Participates will learn about the history and design of several spaces.
  • Scenes from Seton Hall’s Past and Present: Participants will be shown how to insert themselves into old photos, edit photos to add some Seton Hall spirit or recreate classic Seton Hall photos with your camera and our green screen.
  • The 1856 Maze: Learn to program a Sphero robot to navigate a maze designed to commemorate the year the University was founded.
  • Raspberry Pi Game Console: Learn to build and program Raspberry Pi computers to play classic video games.
  • Virtual Scuba: Learn how a Seton Hall Professor is using Virtual Reality to help students experience marine life in their Scuba class.

Space 154 will be open access during the event. Prizes and giveaways will be awarded, as well as pizza and snacks for lunch.
