About this book

Hone your understanding of science and engineering concepts with the versatile Arduino microcontroller and powerful Raspberry Pi mini-computer. The simple, straightforward, fun projects in this book use the Arduino and Raspberry Pi to build systems that explore key scientific concepts and develop engineering skills. 
Areas explored include force/acceleration, heat transfer, light, and astronomy.  You'll work with advanced tools, such as data logging, advanced design, manufacturing, and assembly techniques that will take you beyond practical application of the projects you'll be creating. 
Technology is ever evolving and changing. This book goes beyond simple how-tos to teach you the concepts behind these projects and sciences. You'll gain the skills to observe and adapt to changes in technology as you work through fun and easy projects that explore fundamental concepts of engineering and science.
What You'll Learn

  • Measure the acceleration of a car you're riding in
  • Simulate zero gravity
  • Calculate the heat transfer in and out of your house
  • Photography the moon and planets

Who This Book Is ForHobbyists, students, and instructors interested in practical applications and methods to measure and learn about the physical world using inexpensive Maker technologies.

About the authors

Paul Bradt has a BS in Computer Science from University of Houston Clear Lake. He currently runs a small company that provides IT support and works as a contractor developing various computer programs. He has worked extensively with microcomputers like Arduino and Pi and believes them to be excellent tools for developing an understanding of how electronic components and hardware interact in integrated systems. He also believes they are very useful as teaching aids in learning the basics of computer programming. Paul likes to promote STEM concepts through hands-on techniques. 
David Bradt has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from New Mexico State University with many years of experience in engineering, safety, reliability, industrial equipment, petrochemical and NASA. He likes using tools like the Raspberry Pi and the Arduino to capture data to help form the basis for informed analysis of the physical world. He enjoys building all kinds of systems and is an amateur astronomer.
