Description

Computers are here to stay, and one of the most valuable skills you can learn (or teach your kids) is how to build them. With the Piper Kit you get both a computer and invention kit. Right out of the box, you can follow a real engineering blueprint to assemble your own self-contained computer running on a Raspberry Pi 2 Project Board. Once you're up and running, you'll learn computer engineering through PiperUniverse, an educational Minecraft story mode, and by building gadgets to explore this universe. PiperKit is the perfect tech education tool for the entire family!

"I can't think of a better way to provide kids with the necessary reminder that these ubiquitous screens are tools the humans created and not just parts of our every day environment." Forbes
