Description :

Create a basic intruder alarm with the Raspberry Pi Pico and protect your bedrooms from being invaded by parents and siblings!

We will be using the the MicroPython library to create this.  We will start by controlling an LED using the Pico and then continue to add a buzzer and a tripwire to create a basic intruder alarm! 

The workshop includes a Pi Pico, and an electronics kit containing all the parts you need that are yours to keep. 

The session is aimed at children aged 11 years and older.

This workshop session is priced at £32 per participant and includes the cost of the kit and entry to the museum! For participants under the age of 14, we require an accompanying adult to attend the workshop alongside them. Accompanying adult tickets can be purchased for the normal museum entry price of £12. 

Date: Tuesday 30th July 2024
Time: 2 pm – 4 pm
