Computer Science

Course Description:

Build a laptop in this course that combines hardware and software knowledge for a hands-on approach to computer science. Students will put together their pi-top laptop—that is theirs to take home—from a Raspberry Pi and other circuit boards. They’ll learn to troubleshoot their hardware assembly and then it’s time to boot up the computer—that they built—to experience the thrill of coding in Python. With an introduction to hardware, engineering, and coding, this course has something for everyone. Pre-requisite: Electric Circuit/ Coding 101
