This month we are going to be having a Hardware Hacking evening with micro:bits, Raspberry Pis and Pyboards!
While Python has many great uses but with the advent of the Raspberry Pi and also the MicroPython project it has become a great tool for using to interact with sensors and create rich behaviour in hardware projects with relatively little knowledge of electronics.
The evening is going to be split into two parts.
In the first part, anyone who wants to show off things that they have already made, from lighting leds to small robots can, well.. show off!
Please remember to be sensible about the dimensions of projects that you bring along, those that draw a significant amount of power and, obviously, no projectiles or things that could be considered as weapons. This is not meant to be robot wars! If there is anything of this nature you want to show off, it may be possible to show videos of your creations instead.
In the second part of the evening we will split up into small groups and play with some of the micro:bits, raspberry pis and pyboards and see what we can create for the end of event show-and-tell.
