Product Description

Details

When we were young, we were encouraged to ask questions and challenge assumptions. This led Piper to pursue world-changing ideas and desire to make the world a better place than we left it. Piper believes it’s important to encourage kids’ curiosity from a young age. They are creating products that inspire kids to see the world as malleable rather than static; to see technology as pieces and parts brought together by a higher vision rather than magical devices handed down from above. Piper believes that with the right tools and inspiration, anyone can become a creator.

As soon as kids open the box, they will be immersed in making. The kit is made up of laser-cut wooden parts, a Raspberry Pi, and electronic equipment to use in the game. Build a computer and learn about electronics, all while playing a Minecraft mod.

Your budding inventor can assemble the 50+ puzzle-like pieces to make a beautiful wood case and power-up boxes. The kit comes with full scale blueprint instructions. Assembling your first computer is challenging and fun, so teamwork and cooperation is encouraged!

Each kit comes with the Piper learning system that teaches kids engineering and programming through a combination of engaging storyline, physical building, and Minecraft Pi gameplay. The increasingly challenging levels help teach new electronics and programming concepts step by step.

Through Piper you can assemble complex electronic circuits and make programmable modules that interact with your Minecraft world. You can build real, physical electronics such as buttons, switches, LED lights, sensors, buzzers and more to design your own Minecraft dashboard which allows you to better control your character in the game.
