Let's Build

Want to learn how to use sensors and RGB matrixes with your Raspberry Pi? There's no faster way to learn or prototype a project than using the Raspberry Pi Sense HAT (

TLDR; The Sense HAT has the following components embedded:

• 8x8 LED Matrix display

• Accelerometer

• Gyroscope

• Magnetometer

• Air Pressure Sensor

• Temperature and Humidity Sensor

• Small Joystick

We'll show you how easy it is to install the Sense HAT and then start working with Python to interact with the display and gather data from the sensors!

Please RSVP quickly as the space fills up fast!
