The above image was taken on Thursday 21st November during a Welshot Chester Academy Evening. The theme this month was “light painting”.
The Welshot logo was actually “painted” with a LED / Raspberry PI open source system that I made using instructions from Adafruits site below: learn.adafruit.com/light-painting-with-raspberry-pi/

Thanks for the heads up, Mark! If you’re interested in trying this out for yourself, check out the tutorial below from the Adafruit Learning System.

Light Painting with Raspberry Pi – Light painting is an artistic photographic technique combining long exposure times with lights in motion. Traditionally these images have been hand-painted with a penlight…but more recently, affordable microcontrollers and addressable RGB LEDs have brought a new high-tech twist to the idea. (read more)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
