DIY: Build Your Own Laptop & Learn Coding - Palo Alto High School

Run by iD Tech






Tagged in: Science & Tech, Academics, Arts & Crafts

Your student will assemble their own Pi-Top laptop from a Raspberry Pi and other circuit boards—that's theirs to take home. Then, they'll boot up their computer, powered by the Linux operating system, and learn to code Python programs. Your student will come away with an understanding of what engineering, hardware, and coding have to offer (as well as their new laptop). This course has something for everyone from tinkerers to aspiring coders.

Check-in: Mon-Fri 8-9am. Pick-up: Mon-Thu 5-6pm; Fri 3-4pm.
