Chloe Builds a Computer

January 9, 2019

Ok, so this holiday season I ran across this:

It’s a kit where your Minecraft-obsessed children get to assemble their own computer, then are launched into a series of Minecraft-driven interactives to introduce them (sneakily) to STEM learning concepts by wiring up components and doing some basic programming.  I helped her a bit to assemble the box (a couple years from now she’d be able to do it all herself) and after we booted up, she was off and running.

When she goes through all the interactives, add a USB keyboard and it’s a portable Linux desktop for exploration, learning and probably playing a lot of games.

I wonder what she’s going to do with it?  Let’s sit back and watch…
