Session 707

Title: Raspberry Pi: Alt.Data-Loggers

Presenter: Andrew O’Brien – Chifley College Senior Campus

Type: Practical

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: Arduino or Raspberry Pi? Both designed with education in mind. It seems plenty of people are using the Arduino for STEM coding activities. How about the humble Raspberry Pi? What are the key differences and what do the two platforms offer (the classroom teacher)? A brief look at what can be done with the RPi in the (science) classroom or out of the classroom. How do the two stack up as alternative data-loggers (data –logger replacements)? What add-ons are available to collect data and what type of sensors are best to use with Raspberry Pi. Participants will learn to setup and configure remote access to Raspberry Pi. Participants will investigate and compare the use of one or two sensors to collect data.

Target Audience: 7 – 12 Teachers & Executive
