Passive Infra-Red sensor detects movement.
Realised I have not written any updates here for half the year, it has been a busy time. I’m now teaching the Robotics/Electronics subject but getting students up to speed with theory has cut into real hands-on time.
I also received a grant so there are resources stashed away for when I have time to unpack and set up, but our new workspace is not ready yet.
Toys to play with include:
- a laser cutter
- 3D printer (finally out of the box and doing some tests)
- Arduino kits (these have been used by some of my more motivated kids)
- micro:bits (got a bit of use already)
- Raspberry Pi
- a weather station that needs to be installed, then we can use it to collect lots of data
- a couple of mBots
- bits and pieces of electronics
