Code Club & STEM Group updates 4

Identify different video out connectors. I am making this post, as I may need to ask people what type of video connectors they have on their hardware, this will help them, help me. I can then turn up at a school or other venue with the correct cables.

Code Club & STEM Group updates 3

Pi-Brella

The Pi-brella is a small add on board for the original Raspberry Pi, but still functions on newer models. This had features, such as a buzzer, i/o sockets, a switch and LEDs.

Code Club & STEM Group updates 2

Working on a few resources to support code club, if there are doubts about my ability to put effort in to something then these are clearly misguided.

I am looking for employment to support and help with STEM. At code club & STEM Group, I think there is scope to help with

  • Physical computing
    • Electronics
  • General coding (Scratch, Python)
  • Networking
  • BASH Command line
    • BASH Scripting
  • Data Detox workshops
  • Study skills

Along with a lot more,

A few photos below

Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi, set up with a Breadboard and wires. I just need to re-flash the SDcard.

Bar Graph

LED Bargraph (this can be connected to a PI using Female to Female leads, however using Female to Male leads, it can be connected to an Arduino.)

Traffic Lights

LED Traffic Lights (this can be connected to a PI using Female to Female leads, however using Female to Male leads, it can be connected to an Arduino.)

GPIO Header

The GPIO header allows connection of a Pi to a header on a breadboard for prototyping, the other end (under the board) plugs in to the Pi.

We will hopefully carry on at the next STEM Group meeting.

Torbay Covid update 17/8/2021

From Monday 16th August self-isolation rules for contacts are changing share icon

What is changing?

  • It is no longer a legal requirement for people who are fully vaccinated to self-isolate if they have been in contact with someone testing positive for COVID-19.
  • Contacts are strongly advised to take a PCR test and to limit social contact.
  • Anyone with symptoms is still advised to self-isolate and get a PCR test as soon as possible.

Fully vaccinated means:

  • People who have been vaccinated with an approved vaccine in the UK
  • There were 14 days between the final dose of the vaccine and last contact with the case.

Other groups who are exempt from isolation if they are a contact:

  • Children and young adults under 18 years and 6 months
  • People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons

In summary:

  • Contacts who are fully vaccinated or otherwise exempt will be advised to take a PCR test and limit social contact but will not be required to self-isolate whilst waiting for results of their PCR test.
  • Under 5s will only be required to take a PCR test if they were in contact with a case in their own household.
  • Those who are not fully vaccinated and are not exempt will still be required to take a PCR test and isolate for 10 days from their most recent contact with a positive case.
  • If you are in isolation on the 16 August and fully vaccinated, you can stop isolation from 16 August.

Covid update 29/4/2021

Between 8th December and 18th April; 671,070 people have been vaccinated in Devon. The local programme has also delivered over 210,000 second doses. 1 in 5 adults in Devon are fully vaccinated now.

We are now entering phase 2 – covering people aged 18-49. People will be contacted by the National Booking Service when their age group appointment opens up – by text and letter and offered a local appointment. Some GP practices will also contact patients to offer appointments.

Misinformation is still around about vaccines and so we have included links to some films to support your understanding and to share. It’s worth reminding ourselves that vaccines aren’t the whole answer, they are just a really big and important part of it. Our behavior, such as washing hands, using face coverings and keeping some space are still essential.

Not everyone can take a vaccine, which is why even if you think you are not at ‘high risk’, having a vaccine protects other people in our community who might be relying on you to keep them safe. We don’t always know when someone has a medical condition which means they can’t take vaccines, you can’t tell by looking. Let’s keep everyone safe and well.

Torbay Covid 19 update 5th March 2021

An update from Torbay’s director of public health, Dr Lincoln Sargeant Lincoln Sargeant

Our cases are falling steadily in the Bay which is great news and we need to keep them coming down, but the virus is still spreading between families living in different households.

Next week is the start of an exciting journey for many of us with the first step of the government’s ‘roadmap out of lockdown’.

From 8 March;

  • Schools and colleges start to open with regular testing for staff and pupils
  • Wrap around provision able to operate for all children as normal. Parents and carers will need to check with individual schools and providers for specific offers
  • Care home visits allowed with one nominated and tested visitor
  • Outdoor recreation as well as exercise is allowed as a household and with one person outside the household/bubble.

Please remember that despite the easing of some restrictions;

* We are still in lockdown * We need everyone to keep to their own households/bubble when indoors * Keep making space * Keep your contacts to a minimum

In his video this week, our director of public health, Dr Lincoln Sargeant reflects on the year since our first case of COVID-19 in the Bay, the difficulty for all those grieving the 148 lives lost to COVID-19 in Torbay, and he looks to the future as we ease out of lockdown. Watch the video.

Thank you,

Dr Lincoln Sargeant

Keeping people safe and well Vaccine latest

Anyone who has received a letter from the National Booking System inviting them to book an appointment should use the website or 119 to book an appointment. The NHS is urging people who have received a letter not to contact their GP practice about a vaccination.

The programme of second doses in care homes is being rolled out during March.
