Looking for ways to make STEAM learning more fun, interactive and engaging for students? littleBits are open-source, electronic building blocks that put invention at the heart of learning through play. littleBits aims to get kids walking away from playtime having discovered something they didn’t know before.

About littleBits

littleBits is a New York City-based start-up that makes an open source library of modular electronics. These magnetic “Bits” snap together, transforming the way kids learn so they can grow up to be tomorrow’s changemakers – no matter their age, gender, race, nationality, or ability. Up to 40 percent of the kids using littleBits kits are girls – four times the industry average!

Learning Through Play

Kids are born playing, littleBits helps learners to extend play into a lifetime of hands-on exploration, curiosity, and imagination. Rather than memorising worksheets and formulas, learning is made fun, engaging and relevant. Most importantly, littleBits helps children to learn by doing, by trial and error and not just from textbooks.
