"Technology & Engineering Education Instructional Specialist",

Richmond Public Schools, VA

“What attracts students to littleBits is the support for the realization of how the world works around them (i.e. why their iPhone responds to touch). It’s very powerful for them to know that they too can be contributors as designers and not just consumers.”

Allyssa loya e1496863824411

Library Media Specialist,

Rockwall, Texas

“I see students problem solving, being creative, working as a team, being patient, evaluating their work, and learning how to take chances without fear of failing.”

Christiane agkpo 4 e1496863954155

Executive Director, Montclair Learning Center,

North Caldwell, NJ

“While working with littleBits, my students go through the engineering process from designing to building, testing and improving their inventions. At the same time, they develop their creativity, teamwork, and communication skills.”

Rob gilson 1

STEAM Specialist at Blue School,


“Students who work with littleBits automatically enter the deeply satisfying world of engineering, not only learning and understanding what the Bits do individually but what they can do together, when integrated into a creative and user-tested design.”

Kelly knight 1 e1496864006554

STEAM Coordinator ,

Jacksonville, FL

“My younger students are in awe of the control they have. My older students are motivated by the freedom littleBits gives them in the invention process.”

Sergio anaya bw

Supervisor of Instructional Innovation,

Colonial School District, PA

“littleBits provides our students with the ability to be creative & to design, test & redesign their inventions. I overheard a 5th-grade student say, ‘Mr. Wilson, I have been waiting for this my whole life!’”
