We programmed the GPIO Christmas trees

After soldering three GPIO Christmas trees (using a Kickstarter project, developed by ‘Pocketmoneytronics’) in a previous session, our Code Clubbers were ready to begin programming them in Python. Pocketmoneytronics had previously posted the Code for the GPIO trees on their blog, which is readily downloadable for use. The children opened up several examples before hacking it and making it their own. Unfortunately due to the excitement, we […]

We created a GPIO Christmas tree, ready to code with Python on the Raspberry Pi

Wonderfully led by our coding enthusiast, Mr Sone, Clanfield’s Code Cub is beginning to develop their programming in some fascinating ways. After finding GPIO Christmas trees as a Kickstarter project, developed by ‘Pocketmoneytronics’, Mr Sone bought six for the children to construct. Using 7 LEDs and 4 resistors and a hot soldering iron, the children built their trees ready for programming […]
