The aim of Raspberry Pi club is to help us improve our computing and programming skills outside of Computer Science lessons.
We started by learning how to set up the Raspberry Pi and familiarising ourselves with the steps and various components to the set up.
Once we had plugged in our Pis, we opened a Python programme and began to use it to program Minecraft. We began by using coding to simply find our co-ordinates, then we advanced teleporting, building large structures with just a click and even leaving flowers in your wake as the player walks.
Next half term’s exciting and interesting project will be the AstroPi project. Not only will we be writing code and using that code to send personal messages to the astronauts in space, but we can also customise it with various different colours. We are also be able to take a temperature of the air in space and allow images or patterns to appear on the screen in space. Then we will then submit our messages and it will send over to the International Space Station and will brighten up the daily routine of the astronauts currently in space. We will also receive a certificate when our code appears on the space station. How exciting!
