Ready to start working with motion sensors, motors, and a camera? This set of lessons uses a variety of new sensors to extend your skills as a Boolean Girl engineer. Work with buzzers, light sensors, motion sensors and motors. Learn how to connect these sensors to your Raspberry Pi computer and write the sensor controlling software in Python. Working on these projects is a great way to learn Python. Just writing a small amount of code creates something usable and fun.
The goal of this set of lessons is to understand how to connect and control each sensor individually. For instance, you will learn how to use the camera to capture video. Once you understand how to capture video you could add a motion sensor to create an alarm system, that captures a picture or video of the person tripping the alarm.
Note: This set of lessons requires electronic components not included in the Boolean Box. They can be purchased separately or as a set on Amazon or direct from Boolean Girl Tech.
We recommend starting to learn about these sensors with these lessons in Scratch. Then learn the Basics of Python. Once you understand the basics of Python this course will be easier to understand .
