Piper's experiences are designed to give students the skills in mechanics, electronics, and software to creatively solve with technology.
Unlike many STEAM toys, Piper encourages students to build components, connect electronics, and explore through trial and error. Through hands on play and game-based learning, students 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, the Piper Computer Kit encourages engineering, design, circuitry, coding, hardware building, motor skills, problem solving, and more.
