Worksheets for Your Maker Workshops (Arduino, Soldering, Raspberry Pi) #PiDay #RaspberryPi #Arduino #Makerspace #Education @Raspberry_Pi @ShawnHymel

Maker Shawn Hymel posts:

This past week, I spent some time at my alma mater, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, teaching a beginner workshop each evening and covering a variety of topics. I had a wonderful time visiting campus and teaching classes, and I had a few late nights putting together the workshops.

This handout serves a few useful purposes. First, it provides a sort of syllabus for what the students will be learning. Second, it gives them something to take home and reference, should they need it. Finally, and most importantly, it allows people with experience in the subject matter to work ahead.

If you are interested in the handouts from the workshops, I’ve included them below. You are welcome to use them as-is or create your own based on them.

The worksheets (PDF) are very helpful for going through the steps of setting up a project and would be great for educators and makerspaces in addition to solo makers:

Here is the Raspberry Pi sheet (the resolution isn’t great in the image, click for the PDF)

See Shawn’s post for more information.

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, 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.
