What people are saying about piper
“A fascinating product that grabbed my 9-year -olds attention for hours. It never occurred to him that he could build a computer. We loved watching him open the box and get pulled into an entire world of technology, but inside out. His older siblings (13 + 11) found themselves totally immersed in the Piper as well. Now he wants to take apart the rest of our computers! Great, innovative fun!”- Awesome Amazon Customer
“My son really loved being able to put it together. He loves building things and he really enjoyed using the little screwdriver and being able to watch it go from pieces to product. He also enjoyed being able to watch it come on and work at the end. This is a great product!!”- Alissa Higgins
“This is so much more than a computer... so much more than an awesome case... so much more than an awesome software game that teaches basic circuit design... it's an end-to-end well-designed and well-integrated product. At one point he quietly turned to me and emphatically said "I really really like this kit", and went right back to working on it.”- Nathan Arthur

HANDS ON PLAY IS BACK
We believe this generation of youth will need a hands-on foundation in mechanics, electronics and software to prepare them to solve problems in an uncertain future. Our products are designed to give kids the skills to be creative problem solvers with technology.
Unlike many modern ‘STEM’ toys, Piper encourages kids to build things, take things apart and explore through trial and error. Through hands-on play and game-based learning, kids have early confidence-building experiences that spark their curiosity and inspire them to learn more.
Based on research at Stanford University, trusted by thousands of schools, and awarded Tech Toy of the Year 2018 finalist, the Piper Computer Kit encourages engineering, design, circuitry, programming, hardware building, motor skills, problem solving, and more.
Building is just the beginning
