We had a lot of fun this morning at Schulich launching our new Raspberry Pi and Arduino lending programme! These devices are two types of credit-card sized computer which are developing a rapidly growing following due to the ways they can be incorporated into a wide range of projects.
Schulich will start lending these items out later this week, for a loan period of two weeks, and will be monitoring the service over the next few weeks – the kits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis like all other library materials. We’ll also be lending out a robotics unit and a wearable computing device. Please come to the Schulich loans desk if you’d like to borrow a kit.
We’d love to hear about the creative ways these are used by the McGill community! If you take out a kit, please spare us two minutes to give us your feedback using this form, and consider sending pictures of your project.
