Creating a Home Education School Clock with a Raspberry Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi #Python @Raspberry_Pi @recantha @Worlds6440
With homeschooling the norm now, this home education school clock with a Raspberry Pi and an Inky wHAT is just the thing.
With the rush to change everyone over to home learning, we thought it was important to retain some sort of school routine in our young kids. For that, we decided to make a clock that showed the time, but also showed a “timetable” specific to our needs. Having got Raspberry Pi’s up the wazoo in this house, and previously being lucky enough to win an Inky wHAT from a Pimoroni competition, it was obvious that I should combine these tools to create a very quick “school clock” project.
