littleBits is a platform for electronic building blocks, which snap together through magnets and allow you to create fun and innovative gadgets. Students will learn how to think outside the box and design gadgets which they can use in their daily lives. This will help them grasp the fundamentals of electronics engineering (sensor reading, motor operation etc.) through an interesting and fun way. littleBits tools are color coded and easy to build with. Our course is for beginners, so no previous knowledge of electronics is needed.
