Creative kids build and customize a planetary rover using littleBits electronic building blocks, then transform it by adding out-of-this-world capabilities! Over 30 activities in the free Inventor App guide kids through building and controlling space vehicle inventions, like a space rock collector or an alien life detector, learning STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) skills, and drawing inspiration from real space pioneers. Through both hands-on and digital play, kids gain lifelong skills to become changemakers through invention.

  • 15 Bits, 10 paper templates, 7 accessories, sticker sheet, 9V battery with cable, and free app with instructions.
  • Over 30 activities with step-by-step instructions and tutorials that guide kids through building and customizing fun inventions to explore the final frontier.
  • Fun activities help kids unleash their creativity by customizing their space rover or creating their own.
  • All littleBits electronic blocks (even in other kits!) can be combined and reconfigured to create brand-new inventions.
  • Note: Smart device required for video instructions: Inventor App requires either iPhone (iOS 10.0 or later) or Android (5.0 or later) is required. Amazon devices are not compatible at this time.
