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! Empower students to let their imagination take flight by customizing their 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 to the next level by tackling open challenges that help to change the world.

littleBits Fuse App

The STEAM+ Coding Kit was designed specifically for Sphero's new Fuse app. Expand upon what your inventions can do using the littleBits Fuse app to program your Bits using conditionals, loops, and functions. See how the Bits fit together in the virtual circuit builder to see what you can create with or without owning all the Bits. Designed for learner progression, program using blocks or JavaScript, all you need is the included codeBit.

Technical: Fuse is a progressive web app that is browser based and uses Chrome’s fast web USB/BLE API for connection management. Device must have bluetooth capability to download code from the Fuse app to the codeBit. For programming Fuse uses MakeCodes block programming canvas.

Unplugged Coding: Activities, Tips, Games, & More

Unplugged coding is teaching coding concepts without using devices. It is learning how to code without writing lines of code. When coding unplugged, students use their knowledge to work on computational challenges that will help them understand the concepts they’ll use in coding projects. 
Math puzzles are a great way to make learning math more enjoyable for your students.
