What is pi-topCEED?

The pi-topCEED allows teachers to easily deploy Raspberry Pi in the
classroom. It's a modular desktop that is simple to setup and use, and comes
with all required software pre-loaded for a plug and play teaching solution.

Designed for all ages and abilities, pi-topCEED provides educators with
an invaluable resource for teaching programming, computing and electronics;
unleashing students' creativity and curiosity. **pi-top** Classroom's cloud
interface, lets teachers paperlessly create an assignment, track student's
progress, provide feedback and build new or edit existing worksheets that
address the UK Computing curriculum and wider STEAM subjects.

pi-top's mission is to change the face of STEAM education with hardware
and software that makes it possible for any teacher, regardless of their
computer literacy, to deliver fun and engaging lessons across STEAM
subjects, especially the computing curriculum for key stages 2-5.

A comprehensive solution for STEAM education

pi-topCEED's operating system, pi-top OS, features our unique pi-top
CODER software providing many hours of project plans, coding tools for all
levels from simple drag and drop block-based language to more complex
workshops all laid out in an easy to understand, step-by-step format. In
addition, all pi-top CEED's come pre-loaded with an interactive
educational game, CEEDuniverse.

pi-topCEED also allows students to explore electronics, code and play
gamified content that interacts with modules students can connect to expand
the pi-topCEED's functionality and connect with the ever increasing array
of available IoT devices including the BBC Micro:bit. Simply add any USB
mouse and keyboard and you are ready to go.
