LITTLEBITS EDUCATION TESTIMONIALS
“littleBits is an exciting addition to my discovery tool box for educational instruction. I am currently using littleBits to teach classes from basic electrical circuitry to advanced design concepts. I find littleBits able to reach all levels of student development and ability. We are also using littleBits as part of our new and exciting Suborbital Spaceflight STEM program. You might say: littleBits is “Out-of-this-World” in teaching STEM concepts!”
Steve Heck, Astronaut/Teacher, Milford Exempted Village School District
“As an enrichment educator, littleBits has taken kids to another stratosphere! littleBits truly are the intersection of engineering, art and design; mimicking the multifunctional teams that bring real-life innovations to the world. Tinkering is not just tinkering anymore, now my students can bring the ideas in their heads to life with motors, sensors, and lights! They don’t even realize they are learning because they are having so much fun!!”
Erica Iannotti, from Compuchild
“Our curriculum is moving towards a more inquiry-based, integrated and competency-based focus. littleBits are an ideal teaching and learning tool to inspire creative and critical thinking across disciplines. Because of the open-ended and “maker” nature of littleBits, the materials draw in students that may not initially see themselves as future scientists, engineers or mathematicians. littleBits provide an integrated approach to STEM/STEAM content areas.”
Janice Novakowski, Teacher consultant for the Richmond School District in British Columbia
“The Kit arrived and the kids are loving it during makerspace time, so happy with the product and its functionality. This is the future for hands-on investigations!”
Neil Bramson, Assistant Principal, Mt Ousley Public School in New South Wales, Australia
“When I am invited into a classroom to share littleBits, I build a buzzer circuit and hide all but the button switch up my sleeve. When I shake the teacher’s hand or give them a hug, I buzz and voilà – I’ve got the kids hooked! I have the students work in groups of four or five to explore the Bits and then I begin the lesson.”
