What Is mPie?
The mPie kit includes seven projects that teach your child something new about how electronics work together in a practical way. The included instruction cards are easy to follow so you and your child can start building your projects, while having fun and educational play time.
Designed for children ages 7+, mPie (ages 7+) is a transitional STEM learning system that moves from the basics of circuitry and hardware components of mPuzzle to initial concepts of coding that are also taught in Microduino Mix Kits 1-4. Using mPie’s components, children discover the world of hardware coding, through which children learn how to visualize the logical and sequential order of things in a physical way. With its lessons linking concepts between the physical and virtual worlds, mPie projects increase in complexity to reinforce the importance of sequential ordering are vital, and teach problem identification and solving skills when such ordering is flawed.
A child’s professional ambitions, whether those extends to being an engineer, scientist, climatologist, product designer, or some other similar career, begin with an overarching understanding and internalized perception of what all this means. Placing this vision in front of your child creates a wealth of career options in her mind, and arms her with technical knowledge and understanding critical to success in today’s global economy.
And let’s not forget about social influences. Gamification is an excellent learning mechanism, and mPie combines challenging brain games with interactive activities that culminate in the success of a functioning project. It all begins when a skill becomes real and tangible before the child’s eyes, and she can envision herself engaged with a greater purpose in the world through the enhance thought processing and discovery that mPie delivers.
mPie includes intermediate-level, magnetic, snap-together modules that teach children the next tier of circuitry concepts. Once kids have become familiar with the basics in mPuzzle, mPie takes the understanding of these concepts to the next level by reinforcing the dynamic relationship between cause and effect. Each project turns an everyday function into a hands-on understanding of energy, physics, and more — fueling a child’s interest in how things really work.
