The MakePi team are bursting at the proverbial seams to show the MakePad to the world. At CES, 2018 our booth (#52905) at Eureka Park receive several attendees that wanted to know more about MakePad and how we can improve STEM education.
MakePad was chosen one of the 15 startups to compete at Startup of The Year Award for Tech.Co. The pitch night happened on January, 8 and it was an incredible opportunity to showcase our company, meet important investors and advisors.
We really stand out at CES! The lively four-day conference got together more than 184k attendee excited to see 1.2k speakers and 184k companies from across the globe ready to show off their latest innovations. MakePi team received several amazing feedbacks and that gave us more strength to follow our dream of spreading the code language for kids from all over the world.
It’s Time for the MakePad
The MakePad story all began with one simple mission— “To make the learning of code possible for everyone.” They are also proponents of the ‘maker culture’— a movement which encourages a DIY approach to designing, building, creating and learning. With these objectives firmly in mind, the team at MakePi set about designing a simple and intuitive DIY tablet that would effortlessly teach coding to kids as young as five.
The MakePad is different from what’s currently on the market in three key areas— ease of use, affordability and accessibility. Indeed, the MakePad is interactive, self-explanatory and easy as pie to operate. The inbuilt Raspberry-Pi based processing technology offers serious processing power at a fraction of the cost. Internet is not required to operate the device, meaning that it’s more accessible to more kids, especially to those in developing or isolated areas.
