I’ve put together a collection of four handouts to help jump-start students on projects with the Raspberry Pi. None of them is a project in and of itself, they’re all starting point. For example, the Infrared Receiver handout shows how to receive information from an infrared remote control, then how to turn an LED on and off using the remote’s power button. Students are then expected to extend the material in the handout to complete a project of their own design. The collection is here: https://ccse.kennesaw.edu/outreach/raspberrypi/handouts.php
Within the limits of the resources I have available, I’d be happy to produce more handouts if requested.
