Endless opportunities for invention

Each color-coded Bit has a specific function (e.g. lights, sensors, motors, inputs, and outputs) and is modular and reusable for an infinite number of inventions. Use the littleBits modular system to create inventions that solve any problem! You can even empower students to let their imagination take flight by customizing inventions with crafts and household items. Guided activities prompt students to find solutions to real-world problems through applying engineering, physics, art, and design thinking concepts. Students can then advance their skills by tackling open challenges that help to change the world.
