In June 2017, littleBits launched the Code Kit to help introduce students to coding through an activity they love: making and playing games.
Since launch, we have been so excited to share the kit with educators, librarians, and makerspace leaders -- even if they have no prior STEAM experience -- because it’s just so easy to teach. The littleBits Code Kit combines electronic building blocks with approachable drag-and-drop Blockly programming, providing a foundation of coding as a creative tool that can power real-world inventions.
Here’s one of the videos we created to introduce Code Kit to the world!
This update will give students a hands-on understanding of what’s “inside the machine” and how it connects to the software. Scaffolded lessons and activities included with the Code Kit are customizable for grades 3 through 8 via self-guided instruction or group collaboration in classrooms and makerspaces.
The Code Kit comes with:
- 16 Bits and 30 accessories
- Free programming app
- 20 hours of CSTA and NGSS standards-aligned curriculum, lesson plans, and educator resources
The updated Code Kit is available for $299.95 at littleBits.com
