Today we completed our first ever Introduction to Electronics and Programming course. Using Raspberry Pi computers programmed using Python, over just 2 days students built:
- A digital-to-analogue “one-hand-mulitple-LEDs” clock using a stepper motor to control the hand.
- A 3-way parent sensor, using an IR beam, contact switch and PIR to detect parents approaching
- A gamepad, using buttons to control movements and actions, all wrapped in a neat wooden box
- A plotter, using a stepper motor to move a pen to make drawings
