Give your students skills for the world of tomorrow.

pi-top’s mission is to inspire a generation of makers by giving students STEAM-related hard skills (e.g. coding and circuitry) and in-demand soft skills (e.g. communication, critical thinking and problem-solving) that they will need in a rapidly changing world.

One-stop for STEAM.

From beginning learners to advanced computer science students, pi-top [4] makes STEAM learning into the classroom fun and engaging. Students progress, learning the skills to make relevant projects such as a smart house system, a reversing sensor for a vehicle, electronic systems, a robot, a drone or a weather station!

Great software for making.

With an intuitive interface, built-in Search Portal, and a full suite of applications, our award-winning OS makes designing, coding and making easy.
