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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
