T3 Lesson 8: Project – Make a Whoopee Cushion:

INTRODUCTION

This lesson is an opportunity for students to have fun converting their understanding of the technology into something in the real world.  A whoopee cushion is a glorified button that can be made out of easily available materials.

APPLICATION

This video from the Raspberry Pi Foundation has a very good description of how to make this project work.

The detailed instructions can be found here:

Our challenge is to make the audio files play using node red.  You can follow the video and install this extra output node that is capable of playing audio files.
