NEW: Calliope mini REV2!
The new Calliope mini is now available in the version 2.0! Calliope mini 2.0 means: we leave everything familiar and proven unchanged, but extend its range of uses many times over. Up to 25 additional programmes can now be stored individually on the Calliope mini - everything else remains the same. Access to the programmes developed in advance with the pupils can now be used in class without having to go to the computer room first. Calliope mini 2.0 comes preloaded with 25 programmes that can be used directly. Further information and an overview of the programmes is available at calliope.cc/en/start.
You can order the new Calliope mini REV2 directly from us on this page!

First Steps Start Coding

+Learning at home
The last weeks and months were different in many areas of your daily life - including the lessons. Now there is the necessity (but also the possibility!) to try out other forms of learning and teaching, alone at home, but still together. Classes are networking and developing methods how - despite all circumstances - teaching units and subjects can take place. We would like to help with this and offer different projects for it.
+Live Support
If you have urgent questions, something doesn't work out and you need some exchange, we can also be reached by telephone between 11.00 and 13.00 hours (GTM+1). Get in touch with us and we will help you live with your projects: 0049 30 47496212!

But you should also use the Calliope forum to get support directly from us and the community to make your home projects really fun!
Remember, you can always send us a mail to info@calliope.cc.

Our family of editors is growing

The Calliope mini is now also programmable in the Swift Playgrounds app. Create code with the Swift programming language for iOS and the Calliope mini will show you the results immediately. Find the Calliope mini Swift Playground in our editor section – there is also a free teacher guide available.

First steps - getting started

Do you want to know what you can do with your Calliope mini? On this page, we will show you the first steps, from connecting to your computer to starting your first program.

Getting started

With a little practice and the right program, the Calliope mini can become an instrument, a calculator, a weather station, or a disco ball. We are collecting exciting experiments and lessons, and we are looking forward to many new ideas for personal Calliope projects.
