    1. MY VERY FIRST CIRCUIT

    The awesome thing about using littleBits modules is that it's impossible to make a mistake. Let the magnets guide you! Make sure your battery is connected to your Power Bit, flip the switch to "on" and snap away! Remember that green and blue Bit modules are required for a circuit, with pink and orange optional in between.

    2. MORNING ALARM

    Wake up with the sun!

    WIth just 4 Bit modules, you can make an alarm based on the light of the room. Snap together a power, light sensor (make sure its on light mode!) a bargraph, and a buzzer. The more light there is, the brighter and louder your output Bit modules will be.

    3. CAR SPEED

    Speed it up, slow it down.

    Stick a wheel onto the DC motor (the switch changes directions), and use the dimmer to change the speed. See more fun tricks with the DC motor here.
