CDI Computer Dealers has partnered with littleBits to offer STEAM Coding Starter Kits for classrooms, makerspaces and libraries. The package includes two of littleBits’ best-selling kits – the STEAM Student Set and the Code Kit –plus two add-on packages that allow students to expand on the lessons by creating games or electronic music. CDI is showcasing the STEAM Coding Starter Kits this week at TCEA 2018 (booth 1922) in Austin.
The STEAM Student Set and the Code Kit are designed for students in grades three through eight and are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards. littleBits kits are comprised of multiple electronic building blocks, or “Bits,” that snap together to create inventions and teach students about coding, circuits, music and more.
Each CDI STEAM Coding Starter Kit includes:
- STEAM Student Set, which teaches engineering and design through hands-on inventing.
- Code Kit, which introduces coding to the classroom through creating and playing games.
- Gizmos & Gadgets Kit, 2 Edition, an extension kit that provides tools to create big games, toys and pranks.
- Synth Kit, an extension kit that teaches students how to create their own instruments and electronic music.
