Piper Make Starter + Robotics Expedition Kit


Get the best of Piper Make with the Starter + Robotics Expedition Bundle.  The Piper Make Starter Kit connects to a computer where users will access our projects through our website make.playpiper.com or by downloading our app through the Google Play store.

Experience the Raspberry Pi Pico microcontroller using our 20+ hours of projects using Google Blockly and Python programming!  Piper Make has everything from the basics of building a blinking light to racing your robots.

Build Your Own Robots: Start by using the engineering blueprint to assemble your Walker and Rover robots and learn how the pieces fit together to allow the widgets to move. Designed to inspire creativity and critical thinking about robotic design and inspiration drawn from the natural world, these robots allow a first foray into understanding the role of robotics—to improve and safeguard human functionality by mimicking repetitive tasks that we would ordinarily do.  

Piper Make Coding Interface: Plug your connected robots to your Raspberry Pi Pico and head over to Piper Make, our online, drag-and-drop coding interface to program your robots to move! Access a reference library of user-friendly descriptions for use in new projects and creations, and seamlessly extend the Piper experience. In addition, users can view the Python version of Google Blockly code in real-time while coding and understand the connection between text-based and visual programming.

Chromebook/Classroom Compatibility: The Piper Make coding interface is accessible from your  browser, allowing users to plug in their Pico and start prototyping immediately. Piper Make is ideally suited for collaboration and remote learning as well—visible during screen-sharing and with “Build Your Own Project” features to allow students to code projects and share with classmates and teachers.
