New Teaching Resource For Science Lessons Using Raspberry Pi And Sense HAT #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
New teaching resource using Raspberry Pi and Sense HAT. via raspberry.org
In this resource, students will investigate various concepts from Physics, Chemistry and Biology, using a Raspberry Pi and a Sense HAT.
By following this resource, students will learn:
How to collect reaction times to calculate rates of reactions
How concentration and temperature affect the rate of chemical reaction
That heat can be transfered by hot objects emitting IR radiation
That different materials emit IR radiation at different rates
How to create cooling curves from CSV data
That absorption of IR causes objects to become hot
That different materials absorb different amounts of IR radiation
That the transfer of heat can be stopped by an insulator
That some materials are better at insulating than others
That fermentation is the process of converting sugar and water into alcohol
That the rate of fermentation is dependent on factors such as the temperature of the yeast
That investigations using insects have to be carried out with consideration for the health of the insect
How to plan an investigation to find out what colour habitats are preferred by different insects
How to interpret results from choice chamber experiments
How to measure temperature and humidity data using the Sense HAT
What the products of aerobic respiration are
How humidity and temperature are affected by aerobic respiration
That the stopping distance of a car is affected by both the thinking distance and braking distance
What factors affect both the thinking distance and braking distance
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
