AML Makerspace

We have variety of maker kits that can be borrowed with access to additional resources.

littleBits Kit

Getting started with electronics has never been easier. The Base Kit is perfect for kids and younger makers to begin inventing with electronics in seconds. Bits snap together with magnets, so it’s impossible to make a mistake. Your kids [and you!] can learn the basics of electronics, explore STEAM/STEM principles, form the foundations of critical thinking, or just have fun with blinking, buzzing creations. No soldering, wiring or programming required.

Kit includes:

  • 1 User Guide
  • 1 DC Motor - o5
  • 1 Buzzer - o6
  • 1 Light sensor - i13
  • 1 Bargraph -o9
  • 1 Button - i3
  • 1 Dimmer - i6
  • 1 Power - p1
  • 1 Bright LED - o14
  • 2 Wire - w1
  • 2 Screwdriver - a4

CIRCUITS IN SECONDS

littleBits is an expanding library of modular electronics that snap together with magnets.

COLOR CODED

littleBits are grouped into 4 different categories, which are color coded:

  • POWER needed in every circuit and the start of all your creations
  • INPUT these Bits modules accept input from you and the environment and send signals to the modules that follow.
  • OUTPUT these Bits modules DO something – light, buzz, move…
  • WIRES these Bits modules expand your reach and change direction – great for helping to incorporate littleBits into your projects.

ORDER IS IMPORTANT

Power Modules always come first and Input Modules only affect the Output Modules that come after them.

MAGNETIC MAGIC

littleBits snap together with magnets. The magnets are always right, you can’t put modules together the wrong way.
