Session Two

Session One

The idea of Project Met was really simple. Pupils at school need more chance to be creative, and so after a chat with the Deputy Head Teacher two Year6 pupils were chosen to work on this project.

Taking inspiration from the "Window on the Weather" RaspberryPi project, the pupils were asked to create their own way of reporting the weather around the world.

They followed the instructions in the guide to get started, with only one problem that cropped up with the provided python code;

Weather_py_-__Users_simonwiddowson_Desktop_weather_py__3_5_2_

(Their Raspberry Pi3 had IDLE2 and IDLE3, and was opening the Python code in the wrong version - causing an error)

Once figured out, they had a working initial programme that used Python, Scratch and the OpenWeatherMap API to display weather conditions in any location they entered on screen.

And at this point, they ran out of time in the first session.
