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