Looking for a great toy that encourages your child to get more involved with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)? Well the Piper Computer Kit with Minecraft is just the thing. I got this gift for my elementary school aged kids and they are loving it.
The computer kit is relatively easy to put together. There is no complicated instruction manual, just a fun blueprint format with clear diagrams on what goes where. If your kids can put together a simple Lego set, this is even easier. It comes with everything you need including a small screwdriver.
There are several coding games your child can play in addition to the Minecraft based adventure. There is Scratch, a visual coding program and Sonic Pi, a sound synthesizer program if you have a musician in the family. It is also a real computer that you access the internet with a built in browser and lots of other great features.
I have to say that this “toy” is one of the best investments I have made in my children’s education. It will give them the knowledge and skills for the future in a fun and engaging way and they don’t even realize it’s educational. They have really taken to it and I am so glad they are learning while playing.
