I keep seeing people saving their kids have finished all the levels and don’t know what to do.
Parents…please go take a look at the foundations website resources page. There are so many things they can do.
- does you child like music? -> let them play with Sonic Pi
- do they like MindCraft? -> Create a “Whac-a-Block” game in MindCraft
- There is a issue of the MagPi all about MindCraft (you can download the issue for free!)
- have they ever used Scratch? -> How about ‘PHYSICAL COMPUTING WITH SCRATCH’ (If they have never used Scratch and you have an iPad or Android tablet, there is a free 'Scratch Jr available - My 4 year old grandson and I played with this a lot)
- Did you know that there are school age kids that have dreamed up and are now running some experiments on the international space station using a Raspiberry Pi?
- Are they interested in robots? -> look at all these
To me, PIPER is just another way to provide kids with a way to learn about computers and the world around them. And to let their creative fly.
Boy oh boy do I wish this existed when I was a kid (Ok…there are lots of people that would say that I’m just a big kid and always have been - grin)
