Description:

I would like to purchase a collection of LittleBits for Sunset Ridge School’s Makerspace. LittleBits are the Legos of circuits. They will allow our students to build amazing things and bring those things to life. In combination with the low-cost and low-tech materials we have in this space including cardboard, paper, and fabric, students will be able to build anything! I encourage you to visit littleBits’ website (http://littlebils.cc) to get a feel for how they can be used for many purposes and in many subjects. I envision students coming in on their own to experiment with the blocks and teachers working littleBits into their curriculum by either borrowing them or bringing classes to the Makerspace to use them.
