Course Description

This course is offered by the Raspberry Pi Foundation and will introduce you to physical computing. The course will teach you how to use input devices to collect data and how to process it with Python programming language. Finally, you'll learn how to use output devices to retrieve information from your computer. You will also learn the principles of selection, sequence, and iteration as they apply to your physical computing programs. To help you build the circuits you will use, you will also be taught foundational electronics. The final week will see you create your own physical computing project. CPD Certification Service, established in 1996, is the most independent CPD accreditation agency. It works across all industry sectors to supplement the CPD policies of academic and professional bodies.
