littleBits is today announcing the littleBits STEAM Student Set, a toolbox designed with educators to engage students in STEAM learning through invention.

The littleBits STEAM Student Set engages a student’s natural love of play through invention-based learning. The toolbox supports learners in grades 3-8 with 19 Bits--littleBits’ electronic building blocks--and 38 accessories to bring buzzing, blinking and creative inventions to life. A littleBits Teacher’s Guide provides detailed companion lessons, curricular connections, implementation strategies, and helpful tips, while a mobile app provides thousands more ideas for the classroom. A 72-page Student Invention Guide contains guided invention challenges with step-by-step instructions, from “Invent a Self-Driving Vehicle” to explore the concept of friction, to “Hack Your Habits,” which encourages students to track their habits and invent something to improve their daily lives. 

The littleBits STEAM Student Set is available to pre-order at littleBits.com/education and will be sold through education product retailers for $299.95.
