Piper Computer Kit

Description

Today’s kids grow up with “black box” phones, computers and gadgets that come in beautiful packages, but leave no room for tinkering or understanding how they work. At Piper, we believe it is critical to understand how technology works in order to make sense of our environment and invent the future.

The Piper Computer Kit comes with everything you need to assemble your own computer. Inside, you will also find our revolutionary learning system that teaches kids engineering and programming through a combination of engaging storyline, physical building, and Minecraft.

The kit contains:

  • Beautiful, hand­crafted wooden computer case with HD LCD display
  • Fully functioning computer running on a Raspberry Pi 3 Project Board. 1GB RAM. 1200 MHz Quad­Core CPU
  • Electronic gadgets including LED lights, buzzers, buttons, switches, sensors and more

  • 8 square foot laminated blueprint explaining how to assemble your Piper Computer
  • USB mouse with a retractable cable
  • An 8GB SD card that holds your game progress and keeps your creations safe
  • Custom Minecraft Pi adventure that you play by building and programming electronic modules
