The Raspberry Pi has been hailed as the next big thing in so many ways - programming in schools, hobby robotics, even taking photos from the edge of space! But just how do you get it talking to the world around it?
This five hour workshop will take you through getting your Pi connected to a whole manner of electronics: temperature sensors, motor controllers, light detectors - and then report all this info out to Twitter & its own wee website!
£50 with own Pi, £85 including a full Pi kit. All other equipment and components will be provided, including a prototyping shield to make it easy to add custom electronics and wiring.
Under 16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
When & Where
Build Brighton Makerspace
Build Brighton is a communal workshop and collective of over 100 makers who love to build stuff.
We’re part of a global network of makerspaces – places where people do creative projects, such as electronics, 3D printing, crafts and woodworking. Our main purpose is to provide tools and a space in which our members can gather, collaborate and learn from each other. People beaver away on their own projects, or take part in exciting group projects in a playful and friendly environment.
We are a not-for-profit community run entirely by volunteers. Our members pay a monthly subscription that goes towards paying for the workshop space and equipment for the group.
