Getting creative with animation using Sense Hat: Moving Minions

Recently I’ve been tinkering with the Sense Hat on Raspberry Pi, and mostly wearing a Space and STEM ‘themed hat’.

With the Principia Mission fast approaching and opportunities for ‘Space Jam’ activities with students in the diary, it’s been great to find inspiration with the Sense Hat for broader and more creative challenges from Carrie Anne’s ‘Gurl Geek Diaries‘ series.

For the youngest member of our family, the latest video tutorial sparked an initial flash of inspiration which hinted at a Minion animation but developed further.

What resulted was a great exploration through Python with RGB values, loops and fundamentally creative computing with Raspberry Pi.
