How to Assemble the Fish Dish Add-on Board for the Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

20140420 171340

Average Man vs Raspberry Pi has a great tutorial for young makers on how to assemble the fish dish add-on board for the raspberry pi:

Take a look at most Raspberry Pi add-on boards on the market and you’ll find endless full-size, feature packed examples ready for robotics, I2C, XBee and more.

Whilst these boards offer great functionality for experienced ‘makers’, a part of me thinks we’ve forgotten the reason the Raspberry Pi came about – “To advance the education of adults and children, particularly in the field of computers, computer science and related subjects”.

A solution is here – enter the ‘Fish Dish‘ – an add-on board for the Raspberry Pi targeted towards younger beginners, but also suitable for the more experienced to hack away with.

In this post I’ll show you how to solder the board, and cover some code in another post later on…
