How To Create Your Very Own Raspberry Pi “Harry Potter Sorting Hat” #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

A tutorial for students to make their own Sorting Hat with Raspberry Pi. via teachwithict

In this lesson, students will create a Raspberry Pi powered Harry Potter style sorting hat. Students will also learn how to connect a physical button to the Pibrella and program it to control the sorting hat.

Note: Although I have written this as a lesson, it would probably work better as a project for a small group / after-school club.

Learning Objectives:

• Understand and use sequence in an algorithm
• Understand and use iteration in an algorithm (FOR and WHILE loops)
• Understand and use selection in an algorithm (IF, Else and Else if)
• Understand how to control Input & Output devices 

Curriculum Mapping:

KS2:
• Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals; solve problems by breaking them into smaller parts. Select, use and combine a variety of software on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs.
• Use sequence, selection and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
• Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work; detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs

KS3:
• Use two or more programming languages, at least one of which is textual, to solve a variety of computational problems. 

What you will need (For each group of students):

• 1 x Raspberry Pi (with monitor, keyboard and mouse)
• 1 x 8gb SD Card (With NOOBS installed *)
• 1 x Push button / switch ** (example: Large Red Push Button) 
• Male-to-female jumper leads ** (example: Jumper Lead Cables for Arduino/Raspberry Pi)
• 1 x Pibrella
• 1 x speakers
• Hat *** (See options below)

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
