Sensing The Weather With Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

Create a weather station. via raspberry.org

Over the course of this scheme of work, students will consider the importance of collecting weather data and how this can be done. They will connect some simple sensors, be introduced to the Python programming language, and learn some techniques to gather sensor data.

WHAT STUDENTS WILL LEARN

By creating a simple weather station with Raspberry Pi, students will learn:

How weather predictions are made, and the importance of data collection
How to use GPIO pins
How to create a simple circuit on a breadboard
How to detect inputs from GPIO pins with Python code

KS3 PROGRAMME OF STUDY

Design, use, and evaluate computational abstractions that model the state and behaviour of real-world problems and physical systems
Use two or more programming languages, at least one of which is textual, to solve a variety of computational problems
Design and develop modular programs that use procedures or functions
Undertake creative projects that involve selecting, using, and combining multiple applications, preferably across a range of devices, to achieve challenging goals, including collecting and analysing data, and meeting the needs of known users
