Introduction to the Raspberry Pi Sense HAT: Python

4 Apr 2024

1.00pm – 2.00pm BST

Raspberry Pi Store

Victoria Gate

Leeds, United Kingdom


Want to get more out of your Raspberry Pi? Then join us for a workshop where you’ll learn to use the amazing Sense HAT - an add-on board that lets your Raspberry Pi sense its environment.

Would you like the chance to play with the Sense HAT and create small projects and games using a Raspberry Pi?

During our workshop, you will:

  • Be introduced to the Sense HAT add-on board, with its seven different sensors and 64 colour LEDs
  • Create a countdown timer using the Sense HAT’s LED matrix
  • Code a game using the LEDs and joystick on the Sense HAT

Basic knowledge of Python coding is recommended but not necessary for this workshop - you should be able to write a short program that asks a user for input and then does something with the input they provide. Apart from this, you only need basic knowledge of computers to attend.

This workshop is most suitable for children aged eight and above, but younger children might enjoy taking part with help from an adult; teenagers and adults who want to learn about the topic are also welcome. Adults accompanying children are welcome to join and don’t need to sign up. We ask that parents and carers of children under 16 kindly remain in the store for the duration of the workshop. Seating will be available.
