QPi Education was started 2 years ago by engineers and active participants in the education sector who experienced the growing gap in STEM education in middle and high schools. Seeking to understand that gap, we spent countless hours researching the critical skills that provide transferrable knowledge for students to use across STEM subjects.
Our research led us to create a realistic solution for schools and individuals to adopt an engaging hands-on learning experience focused on teaching Python coding skills. Our in-school kits have sparked interest in STEM for thousands of students in the U.S. and have been adopted by hundreds of teachers. See reviews from our satisfied customers here. If you're a teacher interested in bringing QPi Kits to your classroom, contact us today.
Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world due to its ease of use and wide range of applications. This makes it both a great first programming language for beginners, and also the ideal tool for experienced programmers to build complex software – particularly in web development, game development, data science, machine learning, and AI.
Python’s simplicity of language, which looks like pseudo-English, allows learners to get straight to thinking like a programmer without wasting time with confusing syntax. Python is used in academia as well as industry, and it's also popular internationally. Top computer science programs, such as those taught by MIT and Berkeley, have switched to using Python for the undergraduate curriculum.
The best way to learn coding
From the moment you wake up, to the moment you go back to sleep, technology is everywhere. The highly digital life we live and the development of our technological world have become the new normal.
And that’s why it’s critical for today’s youth to learn computer science. Not only will they learn skills that are required for future careers, but they will also build a solid foundation for problem-solving, critical-thinking, and creativity that can be applied in many areas of life. Simply learning computer science will help them thrive in a rapidly evolving, tech-driven world.
With QPi Kits, we seek to provide young learners a more holistic exploration of technology and computer science by combining software and hardware in the learning experience. Our approach makes computer science much more exciting because they get to see their projects come to life. That experience helps them understand the power of computer science and how things work in the real world, ultimately empowering them to apply computer science in their own creative ways.
