Hands on with the Piper Computer Kit for kids

Techstination feature for Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Recently had the chance to watch an excited nine year old build his own computer.    It was the latest kit from Piper…and while a little family help was needed the diagrams and packaging made the whole thing relatively easy.   Piper Computer uses a Raspberry Pi computer board…includes a 9 inch screen and it all fits together in an attractive…un-computer looking wooden case.    And from there…the adventure continues.  CEO David Lndgren…

“When they are done and they press the on button, they’re launched into a world of 3D animated characters roaming through the Raspberry Pi edition of Minecraft.”

And there is a lot more for kids to learn with coding as well.  It is one of the best truly STEM products on the market.   The Piper Computer Kit sells for about three hundred dollars.
