This tutorial from TeCoEd is perfect for educators and halloween enthusiasts alike!
The guide shows you how to build your own Socrative Zombie, which is powered by a Raspberry Pi:
As a teacher I am always looking for new ways to support students to learn and develop understanding. One of my students made a zombie head which I rescued from the display cabinet. Imagine a zombie that sensed you were in the room and asked you questions about your learning? First, let’s make it ask for some Brains!
1. Getting Started
This simple hack makes use of a PIR which can be purchased here for about £2.99. The sensor is sensitive enough to detect changes in the temperature as a person or animal works past or near. Using a Python script the ‘motion’ can be used used to trigger an event, such as turning on an LED, moving a part or even speaking and asking a question.
