We believe that as technology evolves kids need a way to continually learn and keep up. Piper Club is a new way to learn programming and engineering through new challenges and gadgets you receive every month… all through the game of Minecraft!
By understanding how to program and control computers from a young age, kids are prepared for the digital age. Yet programming can be complex and abstract. That is why we have developed an innovative new method designed specifically for kids to introduce them to programming using the visual Minecraft interface that is so familiar to them
Use Minecraft interface to learn programming concepts

Computers are only as powerful as the chips they run on and the sensors and outputs they have built in. Understanding the basic building blocks of the physical computer allows you to build a computer that works for you and gadgets that help you control your surroundings.
Today all the technology we buy comes in shiny, slick packaging and hides the underlying technological wonder. We believe it is important to understand how devices work in order to be in control of the world around you.
Every computer has a camera and you will learn how to build a camera for your computer and connect it to an LED light to show when the camera is on or off.
Computers also have microphones, by adding a microphone and a motion sensor you can build your own security system.
By building your own keyboard you will enable full functionality of a powerful linux computer.
By adding larger LCD screen, temperature sensor and moisture sensor you can design hundreds of experiments like real scientists do.
What am I building with the subscription?
You will be upgrading your Piper Computer into a fully fledged laptop control system for engineering projects. The number of things and projects you can build is unlimited. By combining inputs (sensors) and outputs you can build anything from a home security system to a weather station all attached and controlled from your Piper.
