This is the 2018 edition of the Workshop Set from littleBits. The Workshop Set is a massive collection of littleBits modules that is fit for a whole class (or workshop) full of young learners. In addition to the 160 littleBits Modules and ~180 littleBits accessories, the Workshop Set is loaded educational value.
The comprehensive "Getting Started With littleBits" Workshop guide (Preview here) is the perfect way to introduce young learners to littleBits in a fun, educational and simple enough way. Each bit and accessory is covered as well as some basic circuits that show students the way things work (like bit order and polarity).
This Set is a great pickup for any school/classroom/makerspace looking to introduce littleBits for their STEM education program. LittleBits educates in a 'learning by doing' way that every student can appreciate and be inspired by. Once you've covered the basics using the included educational guide, you can utilise the littleBits learning cycle in order to drive successful workshops/classes with littleBits. You and your students will spend the majority of lessons trying new things, iterating through new concepts and designs and using one of the most trusted and reliable STEM technologies to do so. A great part about littleBits is that they have an entire online learning and sharing platform that's safe for students to use!
And finally, when it comes to packing down and putting it all away, the Workshop set comes with the substantial carry case, that's just the right size to pack it all up into!

Wands are cool, right? That's what Trinity, Adele, and April were thinking of our recent littleBits Workshop, down at the Core Electronics Knowledge Factory.

They went a bit above a typical wand though, using a pressure sensor alongside a fan, buzzer, and bar graph to make their wand light up...
