Electronics - Littlebits

A hands on workshop where students learn about electronic components and investigate how electrical energy can control movement and light. Inventors of all ages can prototype complex interactions in seconds with our collection of over 300 Littlebits components. These great components use magnets to snap together which prevents the components from connecting the wrong way.

Students use our instruction cards to build different circuit combinations that are desinged to show the student how a particular component works. We then encourage students to be creative and use a number of craft supplies such as cardboard, tape, paddlepop sticks etc to build an electronic contraption.
