Make engineering FUN!
The littleBits STEAM+ Coding Kit provides up to three students with engaging STEAM lessons right out of the box. Students will apply engineering, physics, art, and design thinking as they create sample inventions and then progress to open-ended challenges. While the heart of the curriculum is device free, students have the option to level up to coding with the included Bits and Fuse app, which allows for creating digital circuits and sharing creations. With this bundle, students will be empowered to let their imagination take flight by creating inventions that deepen their subject knowledge, tackle real world problems, and develop 21st century skills.
Invent and code with one, easy to use kit. The littleBits STEAM+ Coding Kit contains 25 Bits, a newly designed durable storage container, printed teacher support materials and 40+ hours of standards-aligned STEAM and Coding curriculum.
- Engage up to 4 students per kit with 25 Bits and 35 accessories
- Run 40+ hours unplugged, cross-curricular lessons and coding tutorials available on littleBits Classroom
- littleBits Classroom Unit Plans, including STEAM Inventions, Coding Fundamentals, and Engineering Design, are standards-aligned (Years 4-9)
- Compatible with the littleBits Fuse app, students of all coding abilities can program the codeBit through blocks or Java-Script text and level up their inventions
- Improved durable storage container for easy organization and clean up & printed materials for instructional support and classroom implementation
