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.
