Frequently Asked Questions

How many students do you recommend per Piper kit?

We recommend 1-3 students per Piper kit.

Where do we find the instructions?

You can use the blueprint included with the Piper kit to build the computer (box). Instructions for the game and diagrams for building electronic gadgets are all in the game!

How long does it take to build the Piper computer?

1 to 2 hours depending on the age of your makers.

Do my students need reliable internet to use Piper?

Currently, internet is only required to 1) download more levels and 2) update the software. After the units are updated and latest levels downloaded, students will not need to remain connected to the internet for the Piper experience.

What are some suggestions on teaching with Piper?

Your first two lessons will be building the Piper kits into a fully functional computer.

We recommend spending time up front talking about things that the students have made, and getting them ready for their task ahead. The Piper experience is challenging, prepare students to collaborate and take their time.

We encourage teachers not to give the answers but to help students to find the answers on their own. Once the Piper is built, have a class start on a chapter and work their way through. Some groups will finish sooner, have them help the students that are slower so everyone completes the chapter. At the end of the class have the students remove the jumper wires and place everything back in the Power Up box so it is ready for the next class.
