Choosing a laptop these days can be hard to do but building your own with Raspberry Pi and Python opens students to a whole new world where they are designers and creators of incredible things. Explore the internet of things through building and programming a pi-top  laptop: the perfect tool to help you learn to code, create awesome devices, and take your knowledge to the next level.
In this course, students will explore the internet of things through building and programming a pi-top  laptop: the perfect tool to help them learn to code, create awesome devices, and take their knowledge to the next level. Students will use the Raspberry Pi, Python programming language, and a variety of sensors, create intelligent systems that respond to the physical world.
This course builds upon knowledge of basic programming and circuitry to empower students to build their own unique projects using the Raspberry Pi and a variety of sensors. Students will learn the basics of Python, physical computing with the Pi, and how to use the Pi’s internet connectivity to communicate with it remotely.
IMPORTANT: This course is Part 2 of the DMA "Robotics & Engineering Academy". We strongly encourage students to take part 1, "Build a Robot with Arduino" prior to this course.
