Dave Honess, part of the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s education team, has been working with Oracle on a fantastic project. He has developed a Raspberry Pi weather station board and peripherals that will allow schools to become part of a National network of weather stations.
He has just announced on the Raspberry Pi blog that applications for one of the 1,000 units that have been made are now open. You just need to be part of a school that will use the weather station and set it up!
If you are in a school, I urge you to apply for a weather station and take part in this great initiative. I saw it in person at the BETT exhibition and it’s a fantastic piece of kit – Dave’s done a first rate job on it.
You can see a video of the beta version of the weather station in action below:
