Raspberry Pi & Electronics

As a STEM Ambassador I am actively involved in teaching computing, electronics and physical computing. Providing support to pupils, teachers and at community events such as Raspberry Jams.

Learn Electronics with Raspberry Pi

I have written a book “Learn Electronics with Raspberry Pi”. It has been published by Apress and is available through book stores.

Learning electronics can be tremendous fun — your first flashing LED circuit is a reason to celebrate! But where do you go from there, and how can you move into more challenging projects without spending a lot of money on proprietary kits? One excellent answer is Raspberry Pi.

Raspberry Pi is everywhere, it’s inexpensive, and it’s a wonderful tool for teaching about electronics and programming. Learn Electronics with Raspberry Pi shows you how to make a variety of cool projects using the Pi with programming languages like Scratch and Python, with no experience necessary. You’ll learn how the Pi works, how to work with Raspbian Linux on the Pi, and how to design and create electronic circuits. You’ll then create projects like an arcade game, disco lights, and infrared transmitter, and an LCD display. You’ll also learn how to control Minecraft’s Steve with a joystick and how to build a Minecraft house with a Pi, and even how to control a LEGO train with a Pi. You’ll even learn how to create your own robot, including how to solder and even design a printed circuit board!
