Little Bits' Droid Inventor Kit: wonderful, highly engaging blend of fun, inspiration, and solid STEM Learning

The following, I gleaned from materials supplied on behalf of Little Bits. This looks to be a wonderful, highly engaging blend of fun, inspiration, and solid STEM Learning... Check out the Droid Inventor Kit, but also enjoy these 2 wonderful videos!

LittleBits has introduced its latest product, the Droid Inventor Kit. For the first time ever, kids can create their own Droid and bring it to life! Using littleBits electronic blocks and the free Droid™ Inventor app, they’ll teach their R2 Unit new tricks and take it on 16+ missions.

With invention at its core, the Droid Inventor Kit fosters creativity and problem-solving skills. In-app challenges encourage kids to reconfigure the littleBits technology in new and unique ways, in combination with household items, so they can create their own custom Droids such as a delivery Droid, a room guardian, and more.

The Droid Inventor Kit includes all the components needed for kids to create their very own Droid. A free app (iOS and Android) completes the experience, providing step-by-step instructions and how-to videos.
  • The app guides kids as they put together their Droid and control it in Drive Mode, Self-Nav, Force Mode, and more, making it the ultimate galactic sidekick.
  • After mastering their Droid Inventor skills, kids continue on to challenges that spark creativity and inspire them to create unique new Droids.
  • Each littleBits electronic block has a different function such as a power, motor, or sensor, which kids can use with their Droid in new and exciting ways.
  • Included stickers and in-app missions encourage kids to customize their Droid using crafts or household objects, giving their Droid its own special personality.
  • Kids will take pride in creating any Droid they imagine, and parents will love the endless play opportunities.
