Gerry Murphy, RTE meteorologist, came into our school on the 19th of June 2017 to see the 6th class projects based on the school’s Raspberry Pi Weather station. Ms. Ryan’s class made an information board about the weather station. This had information like the green house effect, clouds, weather balloons and lots more. Some other students from Mr. Maguire’s class were there too. We had lots of questions for Gerry Murphy. We asked him what sort of equations do meteorologists use to predict the weather, what does it take to become a meteorologist, why does...

We promised you an update on our progress so here it is! After many weeks of hard work, some setbacks and challenges and a lot of learning, we now have a fully functioning weather station up and running in our school! We have programmed the raspberry pi software to take lots of different weather measurements. The station has a lot of different sensors to help us record this data: Sensor Name Purpose Rain gauge Measures the volume of rain falling in millimetres Anemometer Measures the wind speed in kilometres per hour Weathervane Measures the wind direction...

Raspberry Pi Weather Station

Raspberry Pi Weather Station

Our school is one of only a 1000 schools around the globe who managed to get our hands on a Raspberry Pi Weather Station. This weather station enables the collection of weather data, using a variety of sensors which include a rain gauge, an anemometer, a wind vane and a soil temperature probe. We are in the process of getting the kit up and running. A huge thank to Taylor-Rose’s father, Anthony and Kori’s dad, Yemi for coming in on a weekly basis to help us with this project. We will keep you updated with our...
