So while it’s what to gift for the holiday season, how about gifting the juniors (8-12) something they can think about while staring at a screen. It’s all good: Critical Thinking + Building Electronics + Problem Solving + Coding helps the mind, right?

The Kit includes all the components needed by growing creators including a display, breadboard, switches, mouse and a customized edition of the most popular education video game that engages kids with no experience or initial interest in electronics and programming. Comes in a cute handcrafted wooden box that echoes a laptop when opened.

“The Piper Computer Kit transforms the typical experience kids have with technology, giving them the power to create, versus empty, passive screen time. We’ve seen Piper kids grow in computing and engineering skills, and in their confidence to take on all kinds of challenges,” said Mark Pavlyukovskyy, co-founder, and CEO of Piper. “Owl Ventures has a reputation for helping education technology companies scale their businesses, which makes them the perfect partner to help battle the passive screen time consumption epidemic, as we bring Piper to more kids, both in school and at home.”
