Inspiring the inventors of tomorrow
Piper is used in classrooms all over the world to inspire and engage children with programming, design and engineering. There is no better way for students to discover technology than by building it. We are a mission-driven organization impacting education and helping students build real workforce-ready skills. We go to work every day knowing we’re helping to improve education for millions. That’s a job perk, which is better than free meals, though we have those, too.
Our first product is a computer that kids build and program themselves through the game of Minecraft. In a world where most kids are glued to screens, we have bridged digital gameplay with physical building and building in the real world. We believe that most digital games today create passive consumers of technology, and the Piper Minecraft Computer allows anyone to start building and programming real gadgets and electronics as easily as they build in Minecraft. We are allowing a generation of digital natives to go beyond just consuming content on the screen, by allowing them to see what's behind the screen, and build and program their own devices and gadgets.
