Business description: Piper is a Minecraft toolbox for budding engineers that leverages kids' love of Minecraft to show them that building real gadgets is effortless and fun. At a time when technology pervades every part of our life, kids learn to passively USE technology, but not to CREATE with it. We believe that giving kids an opportunity to become creators rather than consumers, and to do it through a game their already understand and love is a powerful way to replace screen-time with build-time. Letting kids invent, tinker, and build in the physical world while they are young is the most powerful way to empower them to create the future.
