Featured Activities

Students working with STEAM Student Set on Doodle Wizard STEM activity.
Make a doodle bot made with DC motors, and a pulse that dances, wiggles, and draws up a storm. Add your own artistic flair by changing up some of the Bits and materials to create unique masterpieces.
Students working with STEAM Student Set on Circuit Car STEM activity.
Build a circuit cruiser, a vehicle that gets around with 2 DC motors. Add extra features to this lean, mean, mobile machine. Use it to deliver school supplies to your friends, help your teacher pass out papers, or wake up your sleeping classmate.
Student working with STEAM Student Set on Launcher STEM activity.
Build a launcher that flings projectiles with a servo at the press of a button. Set up a tower of cups and try to knock them over. Then modify your launcher to make it even more accurate, powerful, or speedy. Challenge your friends to see who can knock over the most cups.

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. 

Pro Tip: Dive deeper into science and math concepts with our STEAM Student Set Expansion Pack: Science and STEAM Student Set Expansion Pack: Math. Each expansion pack includes new Bits, accessories, and 12+ hours of lessons and activities.
