pi-top is a Raspberry Pi-powered microcomputer with its own unique operating system. Using pi-top, students learn how to code in Python. They’ll also be able to create awesome DIY devices while taking their computer science knowledge to the next level.

Included with the pi-top is an inventor’s kit that provides a breadboard, LEDs, resistors, buttons, and more, allowing students to create and code their own physical computing projects.

With all you need to deliver a high impact Computer Science and STEM learning classroom, pi‑top gives you the tools to create a transformative learning experience.

pi-top [4] is the new programmable computing module for makers, creators and innovators. It has a fully programmable mini screen and buttons, 5-hour internal battery, CPU cooling system and accompanying project kits and components. Powering all of this is the Raspberry Pi 4 computer and a new social making platform called Further.

Every pi-top [4] comes with our latest operating system, pi-topOS SIRIUS, which will provide you access to the Further Platform. Further teaches you how to use all the pi-top components through completing challenges and contributing projects to the community. With Further, you can collaborate and work with anyone, anywhere, iterating ideas and designs, building teams and creating things together.

pi-top[3]

pi‑top is a modular laptop that gives you the tools to complete amazing DIY projects and bring your inventions to life. It’s the perfect tool to help you learn to code, create awesome devices, and take your knowledge to the next level.

pi-topOS

The pi-top and pi-topCEED are accompanied by pi-topOS which contains pi-top’s coding environment and educational game. pi-topOS features an intuitive interface that delivers engaging lesson plans and fun learning based apps. pi-topOS also features:

pitopCODER Learn to code, create physical computing projects and track your progress and even test your code in real time!

Scratch A programming language that is easy to understand and use, it’s great for children to start learning and create rich programming projects.

CEEDuniverse You’ll need to solve visual programming puzzles to unlock areas of the game. You can even convert your visual program straight to Python code

Minecraft PI Edition Minecraft is a great way to learn python and a free version is available for the Raspberry Pi. Write commands and scripts in Python to build things in the game automatically.

A variety of other apps including Google Apps, YouTube, and Libre Office.

pi-topClassroom

Discover what’s possible.

Use your pi-top and pi-topPULSE to engage your students in STEAM challenges. In our lesson idea, students build on their programming skills and create a responsive program in Python.

Rolling the Dice Lesson Plan

  • Using your pi-top[3] or [4] the Foundation Kit, Challenge students to create dice that can "roll" a number in response to their code.
  • First, have students create dice out of consumable like cardboard and use the LEDs to signify the numbers on the die.
  • Next, have students use their pi-top to write the code that will "roll" their dice.
  • Give students time to test and tinker as they make any changes to their dice and/or code to make sure it functions properly.
  • Invent a classroom game that incorporates the students' dice!

Drive student achievement, and career readiness.

Introducing iBlocks, a cross-curricular, holistic learning approach by structuring your learning content with a primary and secondary subject focus. But because iBlocks are also customizable and expandable, these foci can change to suit your school’s needs, should you choose to tailor your iBlock.
