The standard-aligned (CCSS and NGSS) activities available in the Droids STEM Kit was built for learner progression. It's approchable for beginners of all ages, yet sophisticated enough for seasoned programmers. From making and tinkering to coding, the program offers fun and engaging hands-on activities that empower learners' 21st century skills.
littleBits is a platform of easy-to-use electronic building blocks that empower students to invent anything, from a remote controlled car, to a smart home device. The Bits snap together with magnets, no soldering, no wiring, no programming needed.
The LittleBits Droid Inventor Kit allows students to create their own Droid and bring it to life using LittleBits electronic blocks! With the Droid inventor app, they'll give their Droid new abilities and take it on 16+ missions. They can also add personality to their bot with stickers, sounds from the Star Wars films, lights and craft materials.
And it's endlessly expandable! Kids can give their Droids new powers with additional LittleBits kits and Bits.
Sphero Edu provides a toolset that is unbounded in its potential. While coding and 21st century skills are necessary, the activities also go beyond code by incorporating robotics and technology with collaborative STEAM activities, nurturing students’ imaginations in ways no other education program can.
The Sphero Edu App (available on iOS, Android, Kindle and Chrome) offers 3 ways to program the robots:
- Draw: beginners can draw paths that represent code for their robot to follow
- Blocks: Intermediate coders can utilize the block-based drag and drop interface to learn Loops, If/Then, Else... concepts
