Miniaturised Arduino/Genuino 101 board using Intel Curie low-power compute module
The newest board in the BeagleBone family with onboard WiFi and Bluetooth
CodeBug is a fun and engaging board that lets anyone at any age build interactive devices while learning simple programming and electronic concepts. The board includes a 5x5 red LED display, 2 buttons, 6 touch sensitive I/O pads, a Micro USB socket and a configurable expansion port. With an integrated battery holder, it can be used anywhere; even sewn onto clothing. The online programming tools include the Blockly-based programming interface that is ideal for introducing programming concepts to young children and a simulator to check code before downloading.
The Raspberry Pi is a powerful, credit-card sized board designed for teaching computer science. With extensive support available, including Picademey, a free teacher training initiative, it allows students to build creative projects using a wide range of tools. The Raspberry Pi 3 has comprehensive connectivity, including Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth and USB, and offers an HDMI port for connecting to a display. The HAT bus allows expansion boards to be added easily, providing additional functionality from motor control to GPS navigation.
Raspberry Pi Projects
This project uses the CodeBug to create a quiz game. It makes use of the touch-sensitive legs to detect the user’s choice, a connected buzzer and the LED display to show the correct answer. It’s a great project that lets students develop simple hardware as well as creating code.
This project turns the Raspberry PI into an intelligent security camera that not only detects movement, but can also tell the difference between trees moving in the air, a car or a human. Detailed construction information is available to make building the camera easier.
