Python for Asteroids: NASA Data for the Classroom

NASA maintains and extensive open database that's served by an API. This workshop will examine the open API structure, use Python to call for data, and construct some simple projects based on the call made. The session is hands on and can be run on a number of device platforms. We'll look at some culminating projects with RaspberryPi and explore getting web data to a physical computing output like an LED or servo.
