The Piper Computer Kit – Minecraft Raspberry Pi Edition
I remember when I was a kid, Mobile phones never existed, We entertained ourselves with our imagination and played out for hours on end. I like so many were hands-on, we have camps, built go-karts, made stuff to play in but can the same be said of today’s kids? The world has changed and the streets where my generation grew up and played on, where we were safe to have long gone.
Technology has advanced so much as well! Do kids have a virtual world at their fingertips? Yes too much!
Kids today have too many gadgets that they take for granted but how many of them understand how they work? Is it not important to know how things work?
Thanks to a company called PIPER they do believe that children should know how stuff works. It’s the only way we can understand the world around us surely?
Nowadays our children use technical gadgets from an early age but would it not be a good idea if they knew how they worked and not took them for granted?
The Piper Computer kit has everything you require to build your own computer! There is also a unique learning system that will show children and teach them how to engineer and program through a system of a storyline, actual hands-on building and of course a little help from Minecraft! enter Raspberry Pi edition!
The Piper Computer relieve your child to progress through games developed by the tentacle skills and approaches deleting things have solutions such as critical thinking, building, electronics, problem-solving, computer coding and also growth mindset these are the basic fundamentals of the child will learn for the piper computer system
How did Piper come up with the Idea?
Several years ago, the team at Piper had the same goal and that was to create products to make our world a better place. In order to achieve this, the team had to learn how to do programming, electronics along with other skills.
The difficulty that is required to overcome occurs from thinking you need to be a computer expert. The thought of technology being too complicated to understand. You can do it and so can I.
Piper is a tool that allows children to create with code and electronics. This comes just as easy as creating a structure from Lego!
Why You Should Buy This Product
Once you buy Pi Edition assembly starts by building the wooden components into a computer case, This is the exploration base where all the crafting of the electronic modules is made into real, working gadgets.
This amazing product gives you and your child the ability to create with the latest electronic components right out of the box!
All Computers made by Piper come with PiperUniverse which is a new teaching system designed by Princeton and Stanford scientists to use the power of Raspberry Pi Edition of Minecraft to teach programming, engineering, electronics, and critical thinking.
The Best Experience?
The box claims the kit is suitable for 8+ years of age but I would suggest that an Adult will need to assist with the build and form 13 onwards a child will have the understanding and patience to operate on their own.
I would suggest unboxing the battery and speaker the day before you begin to build to enable getting a full charge. the battery pack will need approx 6 hours and the speaker for 1 hour.
You have the opportunity to assemble over fifty puzzle-like pieces to make a wooden case and power-up boxes. The kit comes with The kit comes full-scale blueprint instructions just like real industry designers have. The assembling process of building your first computer will be challenging and amusing and will give you a sense of accomplishment.
The Piper learning system that is included with each product will help show and teach children the concepts of engineering and programming through engaging storyline and constructing and Minecraft: Raspberry Pi Edition by increased challenges that will help them learn new electronics and programming concepts step by step and to overcome problems faced with designing and building everyday gadgets we take for granted.
The Piper computer kit is in my view an exceptionally good idea and a brilliant learning product. It will not be a case of opening it and playing with it as it is a highly educational tool and is ideal in my opinion for those parents and children who are into building things not for families who are after a toy to play with.
On that note, I come to the price and why I say this.
The Piper Computer kit is £299
Yes, your reading that correctly and that is why I say you need to have that creative enquisitive mindset to use this kit. I have and bought it as an investment in my childs education.
On the price, yes it is expensive but so is Lego if you think about it. Just remember what your paying for though and that is a computer and the quality of the components in this product is very high. It also has a Quad Core 1.2Ghz Processor and Raspberry Pie software.
I would not hesitate to recommend the PIPER Computer Kit to anyone I know who has a child who likes computers, gadgets or just likes to know how things work.
