littleBits by Sphero creates easy-to-use electronic building blocks that snap together to engineer and invent creations that embody real-world solutions.
Each Bit has a specific function. Invent anything from an alarm, to a wireless robot, to a digital instrument. They snap together with magnets so you can’t make a mistake! Bits are grouped into different color-coded categories.
littleBits opens the door for students and teachers of all levels to a more accessible way to invent and engineer at their own speed. littleBits Kits make teaching fun AND effective with step-by-step invention guides, easy-to-teach lessons, and curriculum linked to standards. From STEAM sets to Coding kits, each is packed with resources that make 21st century education fun and easy to teach. Students can build from the instructions or create something from their imagination, enabling the ‘A’ in STEAM and kickstarting student creativity.

Code Kit App (Mac, Windows, Chromebook)
The Code Kit App, which is required for the littleBits Code Kit, is your go-to resource for programming littleBits inventions in an educational setting. Packed with lessons, instructions, tutorials, and more, the Code Kit App makes it easy for code pros and first timers alike to get kids creating and coding their own games and inventions. Teaches students coding concepts through block-based programming with a drag-and-drop system based on Google’s Blockly, with functions, variables, logic and loops – which are applicable to all programming languages – not to mention critical thinking and iterative inventing.
Invent App (iOs and Android)
The littleBits Invent app is the personal guide to unleashing creativity. Required for the Gizmos & Gadgets Kit, 2nd Edition, students can discover thousands of inventions, take challenges, control inventions wirelessly, connect with the global littleBits community, access step-by-step tutorials and easily share their own creations. Can also be used as Bit inventory and global community for any kit.
