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.
Connect the pi-top4 to a Bluetooth keyboard and touchscreen monitor for a complete desktop experience. The pi‑top FHD Touch Display is both mobile and desktop-ready and can turn the pi-top into a tablet. You can also add the pi‑top Bluetooth Keyboard to use it as a laptop.
Pi-tops Further software platform contains over 100 hours of coding and physical computing projects to explore. Educators can instantly filter content based on curriculum requirements to ensure students have the skills and experience they need. Educators can also assign tasks, monitor progress, and assess students work through the software with ease.
The pi-top4 Robotics kit is highly versatile, containing all the components required to build a fully autonomous vehicle with your pi-top. The kit can be configured to accommodate a huge range of custom robotics projects. The aluminum plates and nylon rivets are designed to be simple to put together whilst ensuring absolute rigidity for your finished robotics project.
The pi-top4 Expansion Plate is a versatile interface that connects the pi-top4 module to the robotics kit. It includes everything you need to control the components in the robotics kit with the pi-top4.

pi-top PBL Projects

In our final video of the series, we will take on a project-based learning (PBL) example to demonstrate how your pi-top 3 can interest and motivate your students to solve a musical challenge: building a Theremin. Join this session to find out what it is!

Need a mobile solution for storing, protecting, transporting, and charging your pi-tops? Yes, there’s a product that can do all of that! Check out the Tech Tub systems from Copernicus. (Psst, they also work great for Chromebooks!)

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!
