Featured Lessons
littleBits lessons make STEAM teaching easy, engage the full classroom, and align to national standards

Introducing littleBits

01

01. Introducing littleBits

Students explore littleBits basics to build up their familiarity with the Bits and then engage in short rounds of mini-­challenges to gain confidence and spark their imagination while playing with littleBits.

Introducing the Invention Cycle

02

02. Introducing the Invention Cycle

This lesson will introduce students to the littleBits Invention Cycle, a process that can help guide students through the invention and engineering design process. Students will start the lesson with a 15-minute design challenge using littleBits. The class will then reflect on their process and learn how their experience connects to the littleBits Invention Cycle.
