In the previous iteration of my website, I had some details about installing the Vernier Go software development kit on the Raspberry Pi and then using Mathematica to visualize the results. Here is an updated set of instructions which is a little more straightforward.
Andy Brunning over at Compound Interest has created a great infographic to help explain some of the chemistry behind the Flint water crisis. The graphic is below, but I strongly encourage you to take a look at his full article
Andy’s post introduces a lot of concepts that could be incorporated into a Chemistry lecture, making it a potentially valuable resource for connecting what students may find as esoteric concepts to real-life situations. Check out the full article while I jot down some ideas for exam questions….
I made this thing a while back, and I keep telling myself that I’m going to write a longer article. Well, it probably won’t happen, so at least here’s a summary of my impressions on the build.

I’ve been having some problems configuring the optimal fan speeds on my computer. Part of the issue is that I have no way of seeing temperature changes while I’m using full-screen applications. A little help from Wolfram, a Raspberry Pi and Adafruit’s LCDPiPlate got me the information I needed.
I wanted to see if it would be possible to create a makeshift remote sensing device using Wolfram on the Raspberry Pi. Toss in VNC and some earlier code that I’ve written and here’s what I came up with.
I finished off the year right, with a limited edition Goose Island Stout.
