Overview

Learn the benefits of using physical computing with your students.

On this course from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, you will be introduced to the world of physical computing. You will use input devices to capture data, process that data with the Python programming language, and then use output devices to get information back out from your computer.

Along the way, you will learn how to use the principles of sequence, selection, and iteration in your physical computing programs. You will also learn some foundational electronics to help you create the circuits that you will use.

In the final week, you will create a physical computing project of your own.
