Best of the Base Kit

Our favorite projects from the Exploration Series Base Kit

The Base Kit is a perfect foundation for a journey into creation and design. There are several projects, both beginner and advanced, that can be made with this Kit. Here are a few of our favorites:

1. Art Bot

Get started with a simple project that can make some big designs. All you need for this art bot is a power and DC motor. What other BitsTM modules would you use to generate art?

2. Three Wheeler

Ride on with this  light controlled vehicle!

3. Pizza Box Phonograph

In this project use a DC motor to turn motion into sound. Dust off all those old records it’s time to turn up the music!

 

4. Flashlight

Recycle household materials to create a mini flashlight that helps light up your path during nighttime adventures!

5.  Phases of the Moon

Use the light sensor to control the moon’s orbit and see the various phases of the moon, from a waxing gibbous, to a full moon, to a waning crescent!
