littleBits at Ramsey Magnet School of Science

October 12, 2012


“Discover Technology received our 12 kits a few weeks ago. Last week I got to try them out with 6 classes of 4th and 5th grade students at Ramsey Elementary school in Couere d’Alene Idaho. The kids (and the teachers) loved them! I wish we had more time to work…I will be an a different school next week with the LittleBits. It should be great fun.”

“My name is Anna Wilson. I am the principal at Ramsey Magnet School of Science in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Dennis Kimberling brought some littleBits to our school last week. He used them with 4th and 5th grade students. Let me tell you – – it was quite a hit! Kids enthusiastically walked through the guided lesson with Dennis. Then he gave partners or triads time to experiment with the littleBits on their own. (One thing we did learn from this is that partners worked better than triads.)

Our students had a great time and were very engaged in conversations about what worked and why things were working. I think they are a nice introduction to electrical circuits – – also easy to use and manipulate. Thank you for letting us try them!”

Sincerely,
Anna Wilson, Principal
Ramsey Magnet School of Science
