As we were talking about holidays and celebrating different traditions, I explained that I had bought them a very special holiday gift. When I first became a part of this Kickstarter I didn't really know where it would go. All I knew it was building, programming and Minecraft. Winning formula for me.
As a more than middle aged woman it might seem surprising that I saw this and immediately wanted it. It's been a few years since I started working with elementary kids in the realm of coding/programming/making/ building, and I am smitten with how engaged the kids are and how a game based approach to learning is so needed for so many of our young people.
As I walk into school on Monday with my Piper in hand, I know I will be bursting with excitement to see my kids get a hold of it!
Oh and did I mention BB-8 is coming too!
