Easy to teach. Even educators with no prior steam experience are set up for success with endless resources.
Engaging & fun. Building and coding games students actually want to play makes learning relevant and enjoyable.
21st century learning. Students embrace failure, think critically, make their own rules, and collaborate while playing & coding games.
Coding & engineering skills. Break out of the computer and bring code into the real world to teach foundational coding and engineering concepts.
Integrates with curriculum. The kit aligns with NGSS & Computer Science standards and can be folded into any curriculum or makesrpace.
Teachers, librarians, and parents all know the secret to getting kids to learn: Make. It. Fun. That’s why the new Code Kit from littleBits Education engages kids in coding & engineering through an activity they love - making and playing games. It combines electronic building blocks with approachable drag-and-drop Blockly programming, providing a foundation of coding as a creative tool that can power real-world inventions.
Make coding relevant to kids
Code on a computer, make something happen in real life. Kids experience how inventing affects the world we live in by building games like a Rockstar Guitar and electronic Tug of War, then creating new, unique inventions and games with the same parts.
Made with educators, for educators
The kit was co-designed with classroom teachers, librarians, and makerspace leaders to ensure it’s easy to teach, engaging, and aligns with NGSS & Computer Science standards. Because it’s cross-curricular, its 100+ activities can be folded into any subject, or even done at home with parents.
In the box
Everything you need to build & code your own games right out of the box is included: 16 Bits, 30 accessories, teacher & kid invention guides, and additional online resources.
On the app
The desktop Code Kit app (for Windows, Mac, Chromebook) guides kids through step-by-step instructions, video tutorials, activities, and tons of prompts for remixes and creativity.
Just for educators
The resources are extensive - built for educators, yet simple enough for parents to do at home. 11 lessons, 100+ activities, curriculum guides, print-outs, and more.
Bring powerful STEAM learning to your classroom
Educators of every level can now bring STEAM learning to life - no experience necessary. We walk you through every step with comprehensive lessons and guides.
About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Simple. Playful. Powerful.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
I am inspired by the other building blocks of our time: the concrete block, the LEGO brick, the transistor. My main motivation in creating littleBits was to equip people with the skills and interests needed to thrive in today’s tech-filled world. At littleBits, we see technology as a language, and believe that nowadays, those who don’t speak it can be paralyzed. Everyone should be able to build, invent, and prototype with electronics independent of age, gender and technical background, and littleBits allows just that.
What makes your product special?
littleBits is more than a product, it is a platform for large and small inventions. We spend more than eleven hours a day with technology, but most people don’t know how it works, and spend the majority of their time consuming media. We believe people are born creative, and our electronic building blocks help to unleash the inventor within by engaging them in an incredibly powerful, exhilarating and most importantly, fun process of invention, rather than prescribing one-off experiences.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Sampling, testing, redesigning, resampling and retesting our magnetic connectors was nothing short of exhausting. We worked with world class designers and manufacturers to perfect the magical and gratifying "click" of the Bits connecting, to make creating inventions with littleBits extremely intuitive and fun.
not appropriate for children under the age of 3
