Finally! An intro to coding in the classroom that engages students through an activity they love: making and playing games. As a bonus, it’s easy to teach even with no prior STEM/STEAM experience. The littleBits Code Kit combines electronic building blocks with approachable drag-and-drop Google Blockly programming, providing a foundation of coding as a creative tool that can power real world inventions. From the Manufacturer The Secret to Learning? Make. It. Fun. Coding is a fundamental 21st century skill. But in the future, knowing code won’t be enough. What you DO with code will be what matters. That’s why the littleBits Code Kit was built to facilitate creative problem-solving, combining electronic building blocks with approachable drag- and-drop block programming. It brings coding into the real world, keeps students hyper-engaged as they build and play their own fun games, and gives them a foundation of coding as a creative tool that can power innovative inventions. Built for Educators, by Educators. Leading lessons & activities is easy with interactive teacher's guides, quick-start guides, video tutorials, online shareable docs, and more. The game-based design of the kit is supported by resources to make it easy for educators, even those without computer science experience, to teach coding right out of the box. A 12-member educator advisory board helped create the curriculum making the littleBits Code Kit an education product designed for teachers, with teachers. Fun & Engaging Tested with educators and kids to make sure it’s tons of fun. 100+ Activities & 10 Lessons Cross-curricular, customizable activities tie to NGSS and make it easy to fold coding into any classroom, library, or makerspace. Easy to Teach The simplicity of littleBits + block programming, plus an abundance of resources, sets educators up for success - even with no prior computer science experience. Unleash the Inventor Within Let's empower the next generation to have the creative confidence & curiousity to always ask why. To test ideas without fear. To take feedback without ego. To use their brains and hands to solve real-world problems when there isn't a clear right answer. With littleBits, kids learn how to be more than consumers of technology. They become inventors. About the Startup Describe your product in 3 words. Simple. Playful. Powerful. How did you come up with the idea for this product? I am inspired by the other building blocks of our time: the concrete block, the LEGO brick, the transistor. My main motivation in creating littleBits was to equip people with the skills and interests needed to thrive in today’s tech- filled world. At littleBits, we see technology as a language, and believe that nowadays, those who don’t speak it can be paralyzed. Everyone should be able to build, invent, and prototype with electronics independent of age, gender and technical background, and littleBits allows just that. What makes your product special? littleBits is more than a product, it is a platform for large and small inventions. We spend more than eleven hours a day with technology, but most people don’t know how it works, and spend the majority of their time consuming media. We believe people are born creative, and our electronic building blocks help to unleash the inventor within by engaging them in an incredibly powerful, exhilarating and most importantly, fun process of invention, rather than prescribing one-off experiences. What has been the best part of your startup experience? Sampling, testing, redesigning, resampling and retesting our magnetic connectors was nothing short of exhausting. We worked with world class designers and manufacturers to perfect the magical and gratifying "click" of the Bits connecting, to make creating inventions with littleBits extremely intuitive and fun.
