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 [3] laptop: the perfect tool to help you learn to code, create awesome devices, and take your knowledge to the next level.

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.
