What’s mPie about?
mPie (ages 7+) It begins with understanding kids. Grade school is a time when kids form their understanding of the greater world and begin to set their ambition for the future. They naturally navigate toward those things that pique their interest and begin to expand this into the future. This begins, but is also limited to their exposure to life and its options.
“I want to be an engineer when I grow up, a scientist, a climatologist…” all begin with an overarching understanding and internalized perception of what this means. Placing this vision in front of your child creates options in their mind and in their future self.
And let’s not forget social influences. Gamification is an excellent learning method and mPie provides brain-game challenges with interactive activities that culminate in the success of a functioning project. It all begins when a skill becomes real before the child’s eyes and they can envision themselves engaged with such purpose in the world. mPie initiates such thought process and discovery.
mPie includes intermediate-level, magnetic, snap-together modules that teach the next tier of circuitry concepts. Once kids have become familiar with the basics through mPuzzle, the mPie kit takes it up a notch within the same learning dynamic of cause and effect. Each project turns an everyday function into a dynamic understanding of energy, physics, and more–fueling one’s interest in how things really work.
