Pi Pals: Buzz

Hi, I’M Buzz!
You might know my friend Chip.
That is him, next to me, in the picture below.
We are best friends.

Buzz & Chip

Chip and I are Pi Pals and we love to make stuff. Do you like to make stuff?  Here you can learn how to assemble my kit, build my Brain Board, and make a Paper Pal version of me. I hope you will join me and Chip on our Maker adventures. (If you are looking for Chip’s projects, go to this page.)

A group of very special people helped bring me to life through Kickstarter! They are some very awesome people! You can meet them here on our Page of Fame.

If you missed my Kickstarter, you can get your own kit in the shop and don’t forget to pick up my friend Chip too.

Your Brain Blast Kit includes a Paper Pal version of Buzz.

Go here for the paper instructions.
