Piper updates computer building and coding for kids

Techstination feature for Monday, July 15, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Building a working computer and learning to code with it may sound like a lot for kids as young as seven to take on, but Piper Computer has been making that possible with its fun kits….like the new Piper Computer Kit 2 and a new command center for building a programming a game controller as well.   That’s designed for 13 year olds and up.   We love what they are doing and Piper’s Chief Academic Officer Melissa Belardi says...

“We believe that every student should be armed with the skills they need for the 21st century as well as for the automation of the workforce and jobs we don’t even know will exist yet.   And so that’s what we’re trying to do for students.  Ensuring that they are digitally fluent and they have 21st century skills in problem solving, critical thinking and effective collaboration.”

The approach at Piper is unique, engaging…and we think…very smart.   Find more at www.playpiper.com.
