From the Forums: High School Students Demo Their #RaspberryPi Projects #piday
Thanks to Margaret for sending this in – it’s great to see such a capable and cheap computer like the Raspberry Pi challenging this small group of high school-aged students to troubleshoot problems and to think creatively about solutions.
A group of six 12th graders just did some curriculum tests and we made a video to share what we learned about:
– Adafruit PiTFT 3.5″ Touch Screen
– HDMI integration with renderers such as Open GL. PD2, PD3
– Pi Cobbler with LEDs and bread board.
– Processing 2 vs 3 and Library Compatibilty Issues
– Student projects showcase and more.

PiTFT – Assembled 480×320 3.5″ TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi: Is this not the cutest, little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 3.5″ display with 480×320 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay so is slightly larger than our popular original. The plate uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top! Read more.

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.
