Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi Night – Thursday 21st Feb 2019

On the third Thursday of each month Basingstoke Makerspace members get together for “Pi Night”.  

You would be surprised how many people  have bought a Raspberry Pi and left it sitting in a drawer unused. Come along to the Makerspace and find what could be done with it.

This is an open meeting for Makerspace members to pose and answer any Raspberry Pi related questions and join others working on projects such as pollution mapping and using cameras for object recognition..  

This group includes  people with a range of experience: from those who just want to ask what a Raspberry Pi can do,  to those connecting their Pi to electronics and manipulating the GPIO pins via C.

Come along and Join us!

Every Tuesday 7-9 pm – Makerspace Open Evening

Do you know what happens in a makerspace? Drop in to Basingstoke Makerspace on any Tuesday evening to find out.

At a recent Tuesday Open Evening. one individual was making a three-foot long dinosaur skeleton using a 3D printer. At the same time another was demonstrating how to use a wood lathe to create a wooden bowl.  A group of people at one table discussed  how  artificial Intelligence could be used in the home, while others were busy creating jewellery at a nearby table. Some just enjoyed the free tea and coffee and watched as others tried out a pen that creates 3D.objects.

All in all, a fairly typical evening at the Makerspace!

You can find us every Tuesday at Maritime House, 65 New Rd, Basingstoke RG21 7PW on the opposite side of the road to Majestic Wine in Basingstoke.
