Raspberry Pi project
Daniel Hazy and GCU senior Paul Rodriguez recently helmed a coding project for GCU Day. Students from Mountain Point High School were challenged with creating a functional traffic light that would cycle until stopped by using Raspberry Pi computers and breadboard circuit devices. They typed the Python programming language to make the light function. Rodriguez detailed the steps to create the operating traffic light, and he and Hazy helped students who needed assistance with building the code. The students were able to run the code and get their traffic lights to operate correctly. Students also were asked to create a functioning intersection. Students worked in groups to construct intersections with the traffic lights they had created. They had to make sure the timing was right to prevent a green light and yellow light from running at the same time.
