littleBits ... an invention platform for 21st Century Learning What is littleBits?
is a pioneer of the Maker Movement–a platform of easy-to-use electronic
building blocks that can be used for creating inventions of all sizes.
The maker will be empowered to invent anything, from a remote controlled
car, to a smart home device! The Bits snap together with magnets, no
soldering, no wiring, no programming!
littleBits makes it easy
for both teachers and students to engage in STEM by using a universal,
21st century language: electronic building blocks. The intuitive,
colour-coded Bits each have a specific function (ie motion, lights,
sound, sensors, internet connectivity), and all the Bits snap together
with magnets to make larger circuits.
There are only two rules for littleBits!
1. The magnets are always right
2. You always start with a blue and a green; pink and orange are optional (in between)
The STEAM Student Kit
