DT 7 Python + Biology

Combine Biology and Digital Technologies to build an animal classifier!

Learn about the differences between animals, and how Biologists use programming to help them do science!

We'll learn about the features of animals, and how to use their differences in order to classify them. So hop in and learn some science!
