Part 3 - Learning Python with pi-top: Conditionals & Loops

Why did the turtle cross the road? Well, probably to attend our Python session… but what’s more important is HOW the turtle gets to the other side of the road. Session three of Learning Python with the pi-top is all about control flow. We’ll show you how to use a classic computer programming application called Turtle Art (hint: it comes pre-installed on your pi-top). Join us to gather resources for teaching control flow with the pi-top that includes turtles and so much more! 

pi-top[4] Robotics 102 with Further

In this video, we move beyond the basics of Python programming and your pi-top[4] unit.  From the pi-top Further website, we take a look at Courses, where teachers and students can explore programming concepts through Robotics, namely “Robotics 102” where our Prax robot imitates human qualities!

pi-top[4] Robotics 101 with Further

In this video, we move beyond the basics of Python programming and your pi-top[4] unit.  From the pi-top Further website, we take a look at Courses, where teachers and students can explore programming concepts through Robotics, namely “Robotics 101” where the robot becomes a Mars Rover.  Check it out!

pi-top[4] Pulse Light Show
